Where would you see this,  it's not far away in fact it's quite near?

There have been three clues listed already but I think that the GR on the post box must be George V and not George VI

Sorry Steve but it's much nearer the Three Towns, it's further North and very near and that's a clue too!   

Hope that you have more Luck finding the answer

Not Aber Falls but it is in Llanfairfechan you're getting quite "near" to the answer Steve

Let's recap, the clues are there and it was all started in the reign of George V.

The Close, Llanfairfechan, the architect of these lovely Arts & Crafts houses was Herbert Luck North. I really, really wanted to live in one of those houses when I was younger but they were far to expensive.

Well done Meleri, that's spot on           $good$

It's a beautiful street and I think that every thing in the street is listed including the post box featured in the photo

If anyone hasn't seen the street before then it will be well worth a visit there

Yes Spotty Dog St Winifred's School was just in front of The Close but shut in 1968. It was then demolished to build the Parc Henblas Estate, but there was a St Winifred's Close as part of it.
