 Postbox Parade

   There are over 200 assorted letters boxes, mostly from the United Kingdom.

   Almost every type of box ever cast in the UK is represented in the collection.

   All the examples on display have been restored, at least cosmetically, to their pristine, original condition.  

   A few have been decorated in “period” colours.  There is a pillar box in wartime livery, an Airmail box

   and a few of “specials” - including H.M. The Queens Silver & Golden Jubilees and a khaki lampbox  

  hand-painted with a World  War One theme.

   All the boxes will be illustrated in this site or in our associated site at

Here are a few of the outdoor collection to be going on with!
