Nest box positioning

What is the best position / placing for nest boxes please?

Is there a maximum height for them? Do they need to face in a particular direction?

We have a small garden that has many bird visitors on a daily basis. Last year we put out some sheeps wool in a peanut feeder and the Blue Tits used some of it but disappeared elsewhere.

Having developed a love of watching the birds in the garden we would cherish them nesting there but current boxes have stayed stubbornly empty!

Any advice gratefully received.
