Moored at Tyle Mill I took a walk into Kings Sutton across the water meadow which, because of the lack of wet stuff from the sky, was dry. KS is bigger than I thought and further away. It felt like many miles. I got lost there and was lucky to do so because I found the Old Post House. Now this is odd because the OPH, the smaller building here, has always been a stable. In fact the hayloft is still there. So what makes it a Post house?
Set in the wall behind the mini-skip is this George V post box made by W T Allen of London. It will have been there a little over 100 years. There is still a W T Allen in London. Examples of Allen’s castings can be found all over the world.
