This letterbox on Lincroft Crescent in Bramley is a bit of a puzzle to me, writes Mark Stevenson.
It is from the reign of King Edward VII (1901 – 1910), and at the time Lincroft Crescent was nothing more than fields.
It was not until the 1930s that for the most part Lincroft Crescent was built in the fields.

The house that has the wall that the letterbox is built into does not appear on the maps until the mid-50’s as does the letterbox.
Does anyone know the reason for this? Could be a case of recycling after the war?
It might have been affixed to an external wall or a gatepost of Lincroft House and later re-sited.
