A Mysterious Postbox Just Appeared In The Middle Of A River

Even Uri Geller is baffled.

1. For some reason, a postbox has appeared on a bridge in the middle of the river in Sonning-on-Thames, Berkshire.

Nobody seems entirely sure who put it there - although it seems to have been added around a week ago. You can’t actually post letters in it, because it’s a) just a dummy, and b) in the middle of a river.

2. The Royal Mail have denied the postbox is anything to do with them.

“The recent appearance of a postbox frontage on the side of the river bridge at Sonning is a mystery to us,” a Royal Mail spokesperson told the BBC. “It is certainly not an operational posting facility and we have no knowledge of how it arrived at this location.”

5. Although he did hazard this not-terribly-helpful guess:

“It could be the work of mischievous child queen Isabella who still weeps in the river for her luckless Richard the second.”

6. Of note: you can buy or rent Royal Mail postboxes on eBay.

Everybody should buy one, go out and stick it up in an unusual place. Together we can make “postboxing” a hot new trend.
