    Nah, the police come upto you all embarrassed or least say they are and tell you they don't agree with this regulation and say they have to ask you to delete any pictures you took of it.

    I'd like to use my zoom from somewhere they won't notice though.

    Weirdly the first time I did one in the same place and I wasn't stopped then!

    It's things like phone boxes, post boxes etc that give our streets character. So much character has been lost and is being lost across the country with the loss of old buildings and the felling of mature trees. It's about time we started restoring our streetscape and start putting more effort into the way things look.
    Companies like LLDC are a great example of how to add character to our streets with high quality street materials, tree planting, quality lighting and installation of high quality fencing etc.

    Some in conservation areas are painted green!

    I think BT donated one to Merseyside Museums , think its in the Juniper Street store.

    Anyone remember the OAKHAM booths? those phones in like an OLD OAK HAM shaped box painted yellow (yuk)on a pole which were introduced in bad vandalism areas rather than a standard kiosk.

    I had occasion to delete a number of the shots of the Portsmouth red telephone box that I photographed from my Flickr account and it was like watching the Tardis disappearing into the void!!!!

    Both these boxes are listed. The larger one, the K2 type is the rarer and dates from 1924 and the other is the K6, not as rare.
    And I feel very nerdy knowing that! It's only because it cropped up on one of my walks, honest!
