It looks quite Scottish, certainly moorland.

So he is my musings if it helps anyone.
on the RHS are what could be power lines / pillons or a bridge?, and a sliver of water.

To have moorland so close to water and be populated enough to have a rural post box, I was thinking Scottish isles of one form or another maybe or coastal scotland.

searching for whitehouse farm and postboxes has got me nowhere
 
Hmm, pretty sure I know the answer to that, but hasn't helped much in solving it, even after finding a list of PO boxes in the UK and cross referencing the solution to it.
A few pages back @swansonj posted a list of every dam in the UK. I hate to think how big a list of every postbox is.
In case you thought that was a clue, rivers, reservoirs or anything else damned is not what you're looking for.

And to answer your earlier question, the postbox is on streetview and that bit of red insulation tape is still on my shifter cables!
I'll consider removing it, but the readers of this thread have got to let me know - should it stay or should it go?

Anyway I think I'd better narrow your area of search down a bit. The location is rather remote moorland, the nearest settlements being faraway towns. If you're looking at a compass it'd be at the top of the dial.

There's over 115,500 in the UK, some listed here,

Just to elaborate on the punks, the track on the right leads to a farm with a proscription against some of them...

The damned being a punk band, these clues are very, very obvious.

And on that list of post boxes too.

Can't believe nobody's got it yet.
 
I aint happy, I'm feeling glad to point out that the location has absolutely nothing to do with Clint Eastwood, Dirty Harry or Harris. If it did my clues would probably have contained snippets of Gorillaz lyrics, like this one does.
Look for snippets of other lyrics, - after all this won't you give me a smile?

Like I said, obvious.

London calling to the faraway towns
Now war is declared and battle come down
London calling to the underworld
Come out of the cupboard, you boys and girls
London calling, now don't look to us
Phony Beatlemania has bitten the dust
London calling, see we ain't got no swing
Except for the ring of the truncheon thing
The ice age is coming, the sun's zooming in
Meltdown expected, the wheat is growing thin
Engines stop running, but I have no fear
'Cause London is drowning
I live by the river
London calling to the imitation zone
Forget it, brother, you can go it alone
London calling to the zombies of death
Quit holding out and draw another breath
London calling and I don't want to shout
But while we were talking, I saw you nodding out
London calling, see we ain't got no high
Except for that one with the yellowy eye
The ice age is coming, the sun's zooming in
Engines stop running, the wheat is growing thin
A nuclear era, but I have no fear
'Cause London is drowning
I, I live by the river
The ice age is coming, the sun's zooming in
Engines stop running, the wheat is growing thin
A nuclear era, but I have no fear
'Cause London is drowning
I, I live by the river
Now get this
London calling, yes, I was there, too
And you know what they said? Well, some of it was true
London calling at the top of the dial
And after all this, won't you give me a smile?
I never felt so much alike, alike, alike, alike

Was there for the taking too!

So you got to let me know
Should I stay or should I go?

Gorillaz had a track called Clint Eastwood with the lyrics I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad

The Clash‘s London Calling had
