I'm not sure where this photo came from, it was given to me at some point.
If someone can recall giving it to me please let me know.

The Post has been long since removed but the Stairs and the Bridge Sign remain in place.
Presumably this is the 1980s, and a scan of a photograph.

Here is the Os map extraction showing the PTP in place in 1982.

I've come across an aerial photo of the middle era Police Box for this location.
This one does show up on the OS Maps as a PCB several times, but so far no evidence of an AP1 yet however.

Here you can clearly see the Box is present in 1962 on the OS maps.
I can't see clear enough on the 1970s OS Maps to determine how long before it was removed.

Here is the modern street view in 2012 showing both sites of the Box and Post.
Notice that the stairs have been blocked off, but the rest of the area remains unchanged.
