Tell us about the area the post box is situated.:
Llangower is described on Wikipedia: 'Llangower was a minor station opened by the GWR on the Ruabon to Barmouth line in 1929 on the southern shore of Bala Lake serving Llangower village. There was no signal box or freight facility. Today, the station has been reopened by the Bala Lake Railway and is the main intermediate point on the line and the only place where trains can pass each other. It is well sited to provide access to the lakeside for walks, picnics and bird watching. Llangower is a small hamlet, with a beautiful old church, 3 miles from Bala beautifully situated on the south-eastern side of Bala lake. The village is on the (original) turnpike-road leading from Dinas-Mawddwy to Bala and Corwen.'
