Post boxes of Lostwithiel

Friday 10th April 2015

When I started writing this blog, I always wanted to feature posts by other people. Here's the first one by John Pegg, a quirky gallery of all of the post boxes in Lostwithiel.

If you've got an idea you'd like to share, get in touch!

A rather tasteful post box incorporated into the main sorting office window of the main post office on Queen street, I'd say circa 1935.
Quite a nice GVR box located on the main road into lostwithiel opposite St Winnow School.
All the family frozen in awe at the amazing and interesting GVR box located at the bottom end of Fore street, by the Co-op.
A jaw droppingly unbelievably rare EVIIR box (1902 -11) cemented into a wall up Bodmin hill. You just don't realise how rare these are . It should be listed.
Well situated GVR box on a wall of the 'Old Post Office' on Grenville road, by the Boer War peace memorial.
This is a fairly common GVR (1911 - 35) located near the entrance to Scrations lane, on Edgcumbe road.
A standard EIIR box situated just below Lostwithiel School, Bodmin Hill.
Another standard EIIR box located on the corner of Coffeelake, on the Lerryn road.
Bonjour... another EIIR box situated on Cott Road, adjacent to the entrance to Barn Park.
Rose Hill / Summmer Street - a standard GVR box.
Standard EIIR at Maudlin, which is within the borough of Lostwithiel so counts as a post box in this category.

Hi I'm Mat and I'm addicted to new hobbies. I used to think this was a bad thing but now I'm embracing it.

Writing them all up in this blog encourages me to finish projects, and helps me keep track of which ones I've tried.
