About the Book
Although now largely unused, the iconic red telephone box is still a common feature in villages, towns and cities across the country. This book describes the history of the phone box located on the village green at Great Walsingham, Norfolk. By examining the specific architectural features of this particular kiosk, it is possible to determine when it was first installed. ‘Walsingham 253’ unlocks the secrets of Sir Giles Gilbert Scott’s unique contribution to the countryside and urban environment of Great Britain.
