ost-box to north
Cottage and post-box. C17 altered C18 and C20; post-box circa 1857-9. Timber-frame with rendered infill and brick encasing, old plain tile roof. End onto road 1 bay 2 storey cottage outshot on both sides. Road end has exposed frame 4-light casement over 2-light casement. At road end on R side stack, beyond 2-light casement and stable type door. Roof half-hipped. This and the Smithy (qv) are part of landscape features of E Tytherley Manor, now demolished.
Including attached post-box to north set in small rendered brick pier with tile capping; a rare survival of a post-box first introduced in 1857 and superseded in 1859 by a version having a pitched top, because the earlier model was found to leak; both types have flaps and hoods to the aperture.
