Canford Cliffs: postbox № BH14 167, Canford Cliffs Avenue
This George V-reign postbox is in a funny little road, Canford Cliffs Avenue, which has a sort of central reservation running through it – as seen through to the distance – though interrupted opposite each driveway so residents can turn in either direction. Widdicombe Avenue, off to the right, does likewise.

This postbox has two drop boxes (see below) attached.
Drop box
A ‘drop box’ is an item of Royal Mail street furniture. It is a receptacle where the postman can securely store part of his morning round, at a convenient location. Sometimes, the Royal Mail van may drop off the postman with his bike and morning deliveries, saving him carrying a heavier load or frequent returns to the sorting office.
Originally drop boxes were attached to pillar boxes and, therefore, painted red to match. Nowadays, they are separate free-standing boxes – usually close to a postbox – generally painted grey, although red stand-alone boxes are also to be seen.
