Long Description:
A Victorian pillar box on Bayshill Road at the junction with Parabola Road in Cheltenham in the county of Gloucestershire, UK. It is one of seven Penfold boxes left in Cheltenham. As at May 2017 there were eight Penfolds in the town but on June 17th 2017 the one on College Lawn was knocked over and destroyed by a lorry. I do hope it gets restored and reinstated soon.
