Go on a tour of our nearest post boxes, just for fun!
On leaving Green Close, turn right and walk to the end of Stump Lane. You will find the first post box in the wall on the corner. This is our nearest post box but the last collection on weekdays is 9 am (which probably means it’s the only collection).
Turn left and walk along Springfield Road until you pass the Endeavour. You will find the next post box on the corner of the slip road on the left. (Last collection 9 am weekdays.)
Walk down this slip road behind the Endeavour and walk along the pavement past All Saints Close and the almshouses, then turn right into Exeter Road. The third post box is on the right. This is our nearest post box with a last collection time of 5 pm on weekdays. Obviously you can get to it much more quickly from Green Close by walking past the church.
Continue along Exeter Road. At the end turn left and turn left again at the Two Saxons. The fourth post box is on the opposite side, on the corner of Torquay Road. (Last collection 5 pm weekdays.)
Walk past the church to the Tulip and keep following the road when it bends left and becomes Arbour Lane. The first road on the right is Chichester Drive; the fifth and last post box is on the corner. (Last collection 9 am weekdays.)
Continue along Arbour Lane until you reach the railway bridge, then turn left into the Bunny Path and follow this until it reaches Stump Lane. From there it is just a few yards back to Green Close.
