(February 2021) Edward VII post box which was located in a stone garden wall on the east side of Lower Knowle Road. Part of the wall recently collapsed along with the box, which has been removed temporarily by the Post Office who are planning to replace or reinstate it once the wall is rebuilt.
Unlikely to qualify for listing but does represent a historic feature as well as a community facility.
