The old red telephone box seems to be a dying, yet persistent breed in the English countryside. Although the ubiquitous mobile has mostly killed the payphone in all but the busiest towns, many villages still retain their beloved red kiosks like a badge. Due to theft, few still accept cash, but when cycling at night, there's something warming about the sight of the red frame and white light, like a beacon to the lonely traveler.

Sitting on the little village green at Lullington, this fine specimen is surrounded by cyclamen and autumn flowers.

To see the car parked the other way round see here.

If you turn right a short distance and you would see these chaps

I had omitted these shots from a walk from Clifton Campville, but I could not resist putting them on as it seems uncanny the number of similar photos we have taken!

Bob,

The red box is indeed a dying yet persistent breed, I actually found one working. Middle left of the photo in Valletta, Malta!

Regards Peter
