The box is fixed to the buttress of the bridge, making it only accessible to those on river boats. People in Sonning-on-Thames have come up with a number of theories for the box's sudden appearance.

Suspicions are it may be the work of a local artist or a PR stunt for a nearby theatre company. The Royal Mail says the box is still a mystery to them.
