Spent a very enjoyable afternoon yesterday with the camera club on a photosafari - a sort of treasure hunt with photographs around some local villages. This was one of my favourites, the very traditional post office at Weston Underwood, a small village between Olney and Milton Keynes.

Thanks for looking and please view large for extra detail.

Super comp, love the little splashes of red - the postbox set in mellow stone, the flower beds. Judging by our way, give it 12 months max and it'll be closed down. Record it while you can ...

Just needs a Bobby or a Vicar in the door-way Dave and you've England bang to rights in 1000 pixels. It's a gorgeous image and a suitably apt title. It really appeals does this one.
