The sights of Waverley: Part III

Maybe it’s because of the I-Spy books that I had as a kid that I remain an avid spotter of things.

It was therefore a delight to see a beautiful example of an early letter box in Haslemere. Sadly it’s a replica, and not original. But interesting all the same, and lovely to see that it’s situated outside the home of its designer, J W Penfold.

In Photo Quiz 6 in this blog I posted a picture of  a wall letter box in Deepcut. Here’s what I wrote about letter boxes in that blog post.

“Deepcut’s letter box is adjacent to the Deepcut village sign on Deepcut Bridge Road, next to the mini-roundabout and its junction with Lake Road. What’s unusual is that the Royal Cipher on the letter box is ‘GR’. Indicating that the post box was erected in the reign of King George V from 1910 to 1936. If you, or your children are curious about letter boxes, especially the old varieties, and there are still plenty of Victorian letter boxes to be found, then click on these links.”
