Phone Box Thursday: A149, Cley-next-the-Sea

The next very narrow stretch of the A149 runs through Cley-next-the-Sea, which, like all good villages, has a phone box (and in this case a surprisingly detailed Wikipedia page).

I had to double-take a bit on Street View as the surroundings have changed so much (the Google cars haven’t been back to visit since 2009). This box is a bit faded, but still has a phone inside (and also a traffic cone for some reason).

More from this pretty part of the world next week.

Phone Box Thursday: High Street, Lakenheath

Here’s the next from Mum and Dad’s recent travels. I found another on Google Street View while tracking down this one, so perhaps there’ll be another visit to Lakenheath one day!

Perhaps providing a bit of symbolism for the fast-moving nature of 2022, this box still had its Platinum Jubilee decorations up on 18th September (other slightly more up-to-date phone boxes were in mourning dress by then!). Behind the flags and children’s drawings, it’s another book exchange, which is always nice to see.

Phone Box Thursday: Main Street, Prickwillow

Here’s one that Mum and Dad found further south.

A rare one from east of the meridian!

The surroundings are a bit tatty at the moment with the roadwork barriers (it looks nicer on Street View), but it’s good to see another village book exchange.

A few more from this part of the world over the next few weeks.
