You are having fun today! If you can stand yet another infants class stroking your feathers, head about 1km north-east to find another primary school, from where you will be in easy waddling distance of The Box.

Trimdon Colliery was the scene of a catastrophic pit disaster in the 1880s. 89 men killed in a huge explosion.

You'll feel right at home there Mr Puffin. When I visited the place was awash with puffins (other species of birds were also present in significant numbers).

Your real challenge though would be to find a letter box on Skomer Island. I didn't see any postmen or postwomen!

That's a lovely place. I imagine it will be quieter there today than it was when we visited last September - what with the weather and the COVID restrictions.

The good news is that you have headed in the right direction as you left Llangollen. I'd recommend using the A542 when you leave the Horseshoe Falls.

You've found it Bill. Over to you.

Even in September (when things weren't too restricted COVID - wise) the pub/restaurant was closed. The buildings looked a bit drab and neglected as we drove past but that letter box stood out. It is tiny in comparison to most of the ones you see and has probably been there since Victoria was still on the throne.

Sometimes it seems like there are not many people getting involved hunting for letter boxes. For whatever reason that has frequently been so and yet the thread is still going!
