The letter box used to be on the main turnpike road by Letter Box Cottage, but as traffic increased, the postman could not stop their vans to collect the mail in safety, so it was decided to move the letter box after a lorry crashed into the wall of the cottage, knocking out the box. The lane was blocked to traffic, and the letter box was placed at the end of the pound.

Footnote: There is some question as to whether the lorry crash was the reason for moving the letter box, or whether the lorry did crash at all.
