I have emptied every post box in Birkenhead over the years and the worst one ever is the one on Balls road with the vertical slot. There is no hopper or slope so every just sits in the floor of the box and that includes dog poo etc that the local scallies seem to find amusing.. Box 15 I think it was but it is a few years since I was in that job. There is also another old but renovated one in Ashville road by one of the park entrances.

I noticed today that there is what looks like an old iron structure/column on Barnston Road directly opposite Acre Lane in Heswall. Would like to know what it is and how old!

Might be a bit OT but looking at those street signs, it just made me wonder, does anyone know what was the difference between a "Street" and a "Road"? I mean, why were they named one or the other, as they are / were? There must be some reason (you would think?) but if there is, I can't find it anywhere (on the mighty internets...!)

I think streets were for passageways where homes were and roads were for going between towns or a different area
think this has been asked before

To expand on the answer above, I remember an expert talking on Radio 5 about the road, street, drive etc question.

From what I remember, traditionally it was the setting that the road was in so:

Street - has house / buildings on
Road - between places
Drive - Country road driven through a forest or wood
Rise - uphill road
Cresecent - bent road
Close - a CLOSEd road (i.e. cul-de-sac)
etc


Now though developers and councils just pick whatever sounds ok!

As an aside, cos I'm bored at work, strangly the French rarely use the term cul-de-sac as it literally means "Arse of the Bag"

There is a similar marked paving slab at the rear of Wallasey town hall.
