Still there in good condition. Although I tend to agree with the proposition that it may well have been repositioned - stands proud of the wall. However, the bracket itself is in excellent condition.

Black not flush with wall, given position of house perhaps a collision with a vehicle may have meant it could have been repositioned?
Building no longer a post office.

I think it may have been repositioned as it stands proud of the wall and the stonework on Pendil Cottage is different from adjoining dwelling.
