This one's nearer to Iceland than it is to London. Kiosk installed in 1956 and never painted since hence the delicate shade of pink! Button A/B box working here until 1994. Both the old telephone exchange (The BT's last public electro-mechanical exchange) and the A/B box preserved by myself (Ian)! It is the only A/B box that I have seen which takes the old 5p and 10 p pieces (other UK decimal A/B boxes take 2p and old 10p pieces).

Ordnance Survey Grid Reference HT 969389 Latitude 60 deg 8 minutes North - Longtitude 2 deg 3 minutes East.

Many thanks to Ian Jolly for the great phone box contribution. I has been luckily retrieved from the old payphone site called payphone_net.
