Post Boxes Around Leeds… The Start Of An Addiction?


So what did you do today?

We dropped the Curly One off at Leeds Station for him to catch the train back to Newcastle and Uni.

We then took a scenic trip home…

We think we might have now some local Edward VIII post boxes as that’s the only one we’ve not seen.  Fingers crossed!  Watch this space.  We did go looking for one in Cookridge but it was a mistaken identity with an Elizabeth II.

Though Mr C has just told me that there is actually an Edward VIII on the corner of Mavis Lane and Cookridge Lane in LS16 ref LS16 254 which we will be looking for very soon.

We also understand there’s Edward VIII post boxes in Prestwich and Radcliffe which Mr C will be looking for on his way to his parents this weekend.

We also found a plaque on The Fleece in Farsley, LS28 which says it’s the the oldest original licensed Joshua Tetley public house.  The pub was purchased by the company on 11 November 1890 for the sum of £2,206-15s-5d.

Then in Fulneck we saw Sir Len Hutton’s birthplace blue plaque on one of the stone cottages.

What an exciting journey from Leeds City Station to Pudsey!

Post box ticks today go to:

Queen Victoria – Tong Lane, Tong Village, Near Pudsey

Edward VII – Woodhouse Lane, Leeds and Low Lane, Horsforth and Farsley

George VI – Meanwood Road, Leeds and Littlemore Road, Pudsey

George V – Farsley, LS28 and Troydale, Pudsey and Fulneck, Pudsey

Below is the Queen Victoria post box on Tong Lane, Tong Village, Near Pudsey.

I seem to have lost our photo of the King George V post box in Fulneck, Pudsey, this is in the wall next to Zachary’s Restaurant.
