SZ0592 : Parkstone: postbox № BH14 26, Ashley Road

taken 10 years ago, near to Branksome, Poole, Great Britain

Parkstone: postbox № BH14 26, Ashley Road
Parkstone: postbox № BH14 26, Ashley Road
The reason for a large postbox being positioned here is that the shop on the left was Ashley Road East Post Office until its closure on 9 February 2004. The remaining Ashley Road West branch now seems rather strangely named since it's now the only one in Ashley Road.

The box is emptied finally at 5:30pm on weekdays and at noon on Saturdays.

There had previously been a single office in Ahsley Road probably the other one called plain 'Ashley Road' from 1 September 1893 until 1911 when the second one opened.
