Solitary Payphone in Leagrave, Luton, LU49

In this far away part of Luton (North of London) stand this payphone. The payphone once used quite frequently by locals, namely the people leaving in the local high-rise blocks (see pictures). However, nowadays it's the gathering place for the local bored youths.

The town was recorded in 1224 as Littegraue, intimating that its name means Light-coloured, or lightly-wooded, grove'. However, another source suggests its name originates from Lygegrove Lyge being an old name for the River Lea.
