In today’s “always on” world we’re so used to being able to communicate at the press of an icon on a screen.
But when was the last time you used a static telephone box? Do you remember the old red telephone boxes located in most streets throughout the UK?
Well close to our home is a rarity - a red telephone box - and it’s pretty much in an isolated location. One reason why it’s still operational.
The number of public telephone kiosks has rapidly declined over the past 10 years as pretty much most people now use a mobile phone. But in some rural areas BT has maintained its phone boxes, or kiosks, as part of a “commitment” to providing a publicly accessible telephone.
How long this particular phone box will be in operation is a good question. Maybe BT has forgotten about it?
