Parkstone: postbox № BH14 51, Conifer Avenue
Parkstone: postbox № BH14 51, Conifer Avenue
A George V-reign postbox in a road which had received an unusual form of traffic calming – every other junction has been realigned so that priority is given to turning vehicles while through traffic has to give way several times. One such junction is the one here, with Conifer Avenue ahead and behind and South Western Crescent off to the right.
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.
