    Excellent composition and a great find! I like the different textures, as well - the brickwork, the postbox, and the climbing vines. This image would make a fine postcard. Nicely done!

    Your letterbox got a new message

    Just to tell you that this box is special!

    This is a very special picture for me so I hope you reply.

    My Grandparents lived in 'the lodge' for many many years (about 50)and it holds some fantastic memories for me.

    I grew up there and every now and again find a little glimpse of it on the net.

    Whilst it is a 'gatehouse' it is simply known as 'the lodge' or Fillongley Hall Lodge.

    Thanks for posting (excuse the pun)

    Thanks for the comment, dinners85, and I'm so glad to have brought back happy memories for you!
    I've amended the description; I had previously avoided the word "lodge" for fear of confusion with Fillongley Lodge, which, as you will know, is somewhere quite different.
    I live in Allesley and was just on my way back from Shustoke when I spotted this photo opportunity. The ivy has since been neatly trimmed back so it does not cover the surface of the box at all, making it less photogenic at the moment.
    I think with a light dusting of snow this would make a perfect Christmas Card!
