ORIGINAL RED TELEPHONE BOX ON STATION ROAD, SUTTON WEAVER.

A thorough history of the telephone box can be found by following these links:

http://www.the-telephone-box.co.uk/

This telephone box on Station Road, in the beautiful village of Sutton Weaver, is known as a Kiosk No.6 (or simply a K6). It was designed in 1935 by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of the coronation of King George V, and it was sometimes nicknamed the 'Jubilee Kiosk'. The General Post Office introduced the kiosks in 1936. It was made from cast iron with a teak door. Where the words 'Defibrillator' are now shown around the top of the kiosk in my photographs, were once illuminated panels with the word 'TELEPHONE' displayed. Production of this type of kiosk ceased in 1968. 60,000 were introduced, but only about 11,700 remain.

A design classic, the K6 kiosk is now a British cultural icon.
