I haven't had it long enough to judge it in the long term. My criticism is that it is just not quite deep enough to take a broadsheet newspaper with the lid completely shut - especially at weekends when the volume of paper is greatest. It only needs about another centimetre - I would have though that somebody could have worked this out.

We bought this box to replace a smaller inferior one that let the water in! Safe to say this box does not let water in. It has very good build quality with sturdy materials. The overall finish is smooth and the depth of colour adds to the great quality of this box. The lid moves smoothly and is just the right weight to open and close - and stay closed when needed. This newspaper/post box is roomy enough to hold newspapers and letters as well as small parcels which is a real bonus. Our box arriv...

Fantastic. It fits the daily mail and local paper in with room to spare. Keeps the papers dry. Very sturdy build. I got some hooks fro. B&q and hung the box on my front gate with no problems. Would recommend getting one of these

I found this to be of sound quality and was very pleased with the storage capacity. It is very weather resistant and I feel I got value for money. It is suitable size for all sizes of envelopes and any small packages. If you want to have something for parcels then you would need something larger. I put a big red sign inside the lid of the mailbox directing the post man to a safe place to put parcels if I am out and so all my mailing needs have been met. I recommend this product to those needing ...

Does this work as a free standing news paper box or must it be wall mounted?
Sheila higgins, Morecambe
You could use this box as a free standing box. However, this box includes pre-drilled holes in the back, designed to be securely mounted to a brick wall.

How does the Thames Black differ from the Tamar Black?
Andrew
The difference between the Thames and Tamar post boxes is that the Thames post box has a bronze "Newspapers" plaque fitted to the front where as the Tamar does not.

is this item definately waterproof?
marion, kent
No, the unit does have a sloping lid to help keep rain water out but it is not classed as rainwater proof, only weather and rust resistant. However if you are looking for a waterproof post box I can highly recommend a unit from the Brabantia range Brabantia - B100 Black Post Box
