Phone Box Thursday: A166, Wetwang

We’re finally on the final day of Mum and Dad’s trip around East Anglia and surroundings last September. They found twenty-eight phone boxes in total, today’s box being number twenty-seven: the penultimate phone box from the trip. After that, I’ve got a few more submissions to share that have arrived in the meantime, but following that I’ll be using Phone Box Thursdays to share progress on my long-in-the-planning phone box map. Apart from anything else it will encourage me to get more work done on it!

(Some general blog admin: I have some updates I want to post about running, parkrun, game-making and life in general. Life is very busy at the moment so I’m not promising dates, but I’m hoping to start getting some of those written up in the next week or so.)

Anyway, today’s phone box:

This phone box has been rebranded as an information box (I like the custom ‘Wetwang’ sign), but there wasn’t actually any information in the box when visited. Hopefully it will appear / has appeared eventually!

Phone Box Thursday: Main Road, Holmpton

A defibrillator box today.

(Coordinates 53°68’78.5″N, 0°06’76.8″E.)

The Street View image is from 2010 and shows that the wall behind still had an ancient ‘Holmpton Post Office and General Stores’ shopfront built into it at that point! Sadly it’s just an ordinary garage door now.

I like the sticky-out defibrillator sign on this one, though I think it’d be even better if they had ‘defibrillator’ panels to replace the ‘telephone’ ones.
