Cranborne: a replacement Ludlow postbox
Cranborne: a replacement Ludlow postbox
A closer view of the postbox in the new wall of the post office (see SU0513 : Cranborne: the post office frontage has changed). It is in more or less the same position as the previous box before the large shop window was removed (see SU0513 : Cranborne: postbox № BH21 113, Wimborne Street) but it is not the same box: this one is a George VI-reign box whereas its predecessor was George V.

The term 'Ludlow' postbox refers to the design which was intended specifically for sub-post offices. There are a variety of exact types but the white enamel plate is what they all have in common (although many survive without the enamel panel, they are still fairly easy to recognise). The name Ludlow refers to the original designer and not to the town.
