Phone no more

Stanhoe’s phone box vanishes in a flash.

On 24 October Stanhoe finally lost its public telephone box.

Reports Pamela Austin: “Whilst Terry, Peter and I were on a Speed Watch shift, a BT van came along and parked, and the team proceeded to remove the empty phone box.”

“They have made a very good job of removing the base and sculpting the bank to match the rest, and one would truly never know that we had a phone box in the village for so many years.”

The old red phone box is just visible in an aerial photo of the old Coal Yard, some time before 1980. This was later replaced by a modern glass kiosk. In 2010 the Parish Council asked BT to remove the phone box, which was in a poor state and seldom used. The council refused the necessary planning permission, so the phone box earned a reprieve – until this year.

As Pamela says, “Now all we need is a consistent and reliable mobile signal…”
