Mapping postboxes in the Inverness (IV) postcode area.

Useful links:

Postboxes should be tagged with ref=*, from the reference number displayed on the plate on the postbox, eg ref=IV1 123. The Dracos site will be automatically updated from OSM for postboxes with ref tags every week or so.

Postcode Area Total postboxes (from RM list) Postboxes remaining Done Notes
IV1 Inverness - centre and north, plus North Kessock, Kilmuir 18 0 OOjs UI icon check-constructive.svg several refs on postboxes don't match Dracos list
IV2 Inverness - east 86 ~50
  • IV2 357 - meter mail postbox on Montague Row is definitely marked with this ref. May be incorrect, as this is in IV3 area, and Royal Mail list says IV2 357 is at Fairways.
  • IV2 5 - Inshes post office - removed with Tesco extension?
IV3 Inverness - west 50
IV4 Beauly 22 2 OOjs UI icon check-constructive.svg
  • IV4 182 (Hughton crossroads) postbox is no longer present. From a photo on Flickr [1] it was there in November 2007, but was removed by February 2009 [2]
  • IV4 163 - can't find this, only location given is "P". Contacted Royal Mail, they say they have no record of it in their database, so conclude that this box is no longer in use.
