Boxed "No.44" in the Bath Penny Post, 1831

The entire below, written in Chewton Mendip, has a red boxed "No.44" in the Bath Penny Post, going via Old Down to Bath to London.  It is likely that the "No.44" was issued under the Bristol Penny Post - there is a gap in the receiving house numbers at No.44 and the Bath-issued numbers don't go that high.

Mail from the area often went to Old Down where the mail coach routes crossed, going via Bath to the East (& London), via Bristol to the North, and via Wells to the South and West.
