That one looks more like an outhouse than a mailbox.

Your collection of mailboxes is so interesting. I never even thought to think what they look like in other countries. This one is beautiful in an old rustic way.

You are feeding my new addiction :) I showed off my postbox finds just a few weeks ago when I went to to Ireland and the Isle of Man.

I love the one with the woman running past - what a great candid shot.

This looks like King Aurthur's mailbox - all that's left of his kingdom.

I love the photo but can't help but feel sorry for the old post box!

One has to wonder why it is encased in cement. Do you think there might have been a problem with post box thievery? You must admit it would make a great conversational piece in ones garden. ;-)

Have a beautiful weekend.

Hi Robin, I think it was originally a post box encased in a large wall, but that most of the wall was demolished to make way for a new housing estate.
I came across other similar boxes (Shh...I am saving one for another PFF).
