Red telephone boxes in Whitstable


On my strolls around Whitstable, I have noticed that we still have several of the traditional red telephone boxes.


Many of the red telephone boxes were decommissioned in the 1980s, when the newly privatised British Telecom replaced them with a new aluminium framed design. Then in recent years the public telephone box has faded from the streets almost completely with the popularity of mobile phones. In an article in 2015, the BBC commented that there were thought to be less than 9,400 red telephone boxes left in the UK.


I have spotted four in Whitstable. Have you noticed any more?
