Post Boxes of Greenwich (3)

Another VR post box today. We don’t seem to have any freestanding Victorian boxes left in Greenwich (ahem, Blackheath), but the wall versions (or in this case, literal pillar boxes – was this once a wall or always a gatepost?) have lasted well. This one is on the corner of Angerstein Lane and St John’s Park, a beautiful, leafy passageway leading through Langton Way onto the heath. It’s worth visiting for another reason too:

Long term readers will know I’ve been banging on about this fabulous ‘secret’ front garden since 2007 and periodically revisit it. Daniel, whilst seeking out phoneboxes, took a couple of update shots for us – they’re clearly working on it at the moment:

I really recommend this little lane in spring – it’s leafy, countryfied and bursting with new life. An Easter morning walk taking in Angerstein Lane would not be a wasted experience…

    Not “they”- the garden is the sole work of one resident who lives there, and very grateful we are to him too. It used to be a fly tip mess. Plus there was the Angerstein Lane murder drama a few metres from this garden a few years back.
    That postbox looks lovely when it snows as well btw.
