Parkstone: postbox № BH14 38, Bournemouth Road
This large, modern postbox stands outside the Sainsbury's Local at 104-106 Bournemouth Road, which has opened fairly recently in premises which I seem to recall was a bed or furniture store previously the Tesco Express diagonally now has some direct competition.

There was actually a post office nearby here at 81 Bournemouth Road from 1908 to 1963 and then at number 131 until its closure on 31 May 1985. I'm sure this box would have moved with the office before ending up (or being replaced) here.

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