What red object is quintessentially British? Well actually there are two objects and this is one of them.
The red post box. Let's face it we even have a colour called post box red!
This particular box is in a local village called Regil (found on some maps as Ridgehill) and is in the wall of the old School house. The letters at the top V R tell us that this post box originates from when Queen Victoria was on the throne. Just imagine the stories it could tell of the people who have passed by and the letters that have been posted here. It would be a very long book.
