Face-lift for Cranmere Pool Letterbox!


Having replaced the capping stone to the outer box last year, the metal door was is need of a fresh coat of paint. It’s likely that this hadn’t been done for over 40 years, so it was definitely time for a freshen up!

In need of some care!

Instead of removing the door, which would have left the inner box exposed to the Dartmoor elements, several trips were made to prepare the door and gradually build up the various layers of paint until the final coat was applied.

Lets hope it lasts for another 40 years or so!

Happy Letterboxing!

The finished job!
