A letterbox bizarrely located in a very hard to reach location is proving a mystery which has got even mind-reader Uri Geller baffled.

The master illusionist and mind-reader admitted he had "never seen anything like it," after spotting the small post box on a buttress of the bridge in Sonning-on-Thames, Berkshire.

Spoon bender extraordinaire Geller, 66, has lived in the picturesque home counties town for 33 years, yet there is no clue about where the inconveniently located post-box comes from.

Recent images of the same section of bridge show it without any sign of the red letterbox, fueling the mystery.

Geller, who has a reputation as a psychic, told BBC he suspected it may have been placed there by the ghost of a small girl which reputedly haunts the bridge.

"This is a very unusual village," he revealed. "There are many sightings of a ghost child that walks on the bridge. Maybe it was the ghost of a mischievous little girl."

Equally clueless about the mystery was Royal Mail itself, which is responsible for the country's 115,000 letter boxes.

Spokesman Val Bodden said: "The recent appearance of a postbox frontage on the side of the river bridge at Sonning is a mystery to us.

"It is certainly not an operational posting facility and we have no knowledge of how it arrived at this location."

'ghost of a small girl which reputedly haunts the bridge.' PA HA HA HA HA,  Uri Geller's a nutter.

 

some joker got ahold of the front of an old letter box and glued it to the bridge.

I guess they haven't heard of boats and pranks where he lives. He needs to get out more.

For crying out loud.  Geller has been debunked time after time, very publicly too.  Why do people still give him the time of day.

 

This will end up as a prank or art project.  It's will be a stick on frontage.

^ Maybe Uri made a letterbox out of wood, painted it up, and glued it to the bridge.

 

"My career is over -- I need some publicity!"
