Such a sad Phone Box

Now it does not look very good does it? It is dirty, it leans at an angle and the upper signs have seen better days. The web indicates that it is a K6, the model introduced in 1935 by the Post Office to celebrate the Jubilee of King George V. By the end of the 1930s there were 20,000 K6 telephone boxes in use all over the UK.

According to Historic England the phone box is one of the few listed structures in the village. I assume that any work to the structure must follow certain standards although I can find no guidance in this respect. Spare parts including the signs can be purchased.

Since the trees have been removed from around the box it is more visual and now it is being used to post stickers. It needs some tender loving care.
