ABC Wednesday: Telephone Box


Today's post for ABC Wednesday is T for "Telephone Box". The photo shows a traditional red British telephone kiosk. This particular type is known as the "K6" and there are three of them left in Ashton. One is next to the Market Hall, one in St Michael's Square and this one, on the corner of Dingle Terrace at Park Bridge, a remotely-situated location just within the northern boundary of Ashton.

Most telephone boxes have been replaced with more modern types these days but the iconic red phone box is always a welcome sight and a little bit of history still in use.

The Google Street View car didn't find this location but you can view it in this Bird's Eye View.

  1. I love the British telephone boxes. I hope mobile phones don't replace them the way cellular phones are replacing phone booths in North America.

  3. They seem to have done up Dingle Terrace since I was around there more than ten years ago.

  4. once in NZ, some one treated the public phone as their own, people call the number, and they knew it was for them.
