Highly baffling – fake Telford letterbox is found 10ft up

Residents in Telford are scratching their heads over the appearance of a Royal Mail letterbox – 10ft off the ground on a bridge.

The convincing red post box has appeared on the parapet of the bridge that carries the M54 over the A442 eastern primary road in the town centre.

New College student Adam Washbrook spotted the letterbox while walking past.

Earlier this year residents in Berkshire were similarly baffled over the appearance of a Royal Mail letterbox on a bridge in the middle of the River Thames.

Very funny gag, who ever did this must have brought a smile to many people.

You have to laugh at british ingenuity.

Much more fun and creative than graffiti.... In the vein of Banksy.

Is this only the second appearance of the oddly placed post box fronts? If so, Telford is indeed honoured.....

Is it a pun on rising postal costs?

Do we now have 'high' class mail?

Or is it a nesting box for carrier pigeons?

I always said the privatisation of Royal Mail would cause problems...;-)

No doubt the Royal Mail in Berkshire will be flooded with mail this time of year,,,;-)

As for Telford it must have been one of the "high ups" in Royal Mail who commissioned that post box.
