A resident who used to work for Royal Mail tells us the postbag stores, like this unsightly one in Crofton Lane, are no longer used. There are others around locally. Now posties usually come to their rounds by van.
Postbag stores like the rusting one in Beresford Road were used to store the delivery mailbags for the local posties.
The unsightly boxes are an obstacle to crews cutting our grass verges.
We are enquiring if there are plans to remove them soon.
