Hexagonal Pillar Box, Tring
Located in High Street, this letter box dates from the 19th Century having the royal coat of arms, the words "POST OFFICE" and Queen Victoria's cipher inscribed on it. It was the writer Anthony Trollope who is credited with introducing that Victorian pillar box to Great Britain, in his job as a civil servant in the Post Office. Behind the pillar box can be seen the War Memorial and the Church of St Peter and St Paul which was built about 1450.
