    Default Red Telephone Kiosk - Fairfield, L6

    Dear All,

    Just for your information, the K6 Telephone Kiosk on Hampstead Road, Fairfield, L6 has been removed (and not replaced) within the last couple of weeks. It was pictured in my post (#88). The last photograph I have of it was dated 2nd March 2011.

    Lets hope all the others are still intact!

    Cheers,

    Mark

    Default A 'New' Telephone Kiosk - L7

    Dear All,

    Just spotted this today.

    It appears to be in the yard behind The Tunnel Furniture Company on the corner of Tunnel Road / Chandos Street, L7.

    If it does belong to them and it's not too expensive, I'm buying it!

    Cheers,

    Mark.

    I saw it there like it is in your pic weeks ago so you can use the fact that its probably been lying about there for ages as a bargaining tool....Good Luck,

    Default Red Telephone Kiosks In Merseyside - Part 5, L41 To L42

    Dear all,

    Greetings.

    I hope this isn't too far off track for this thread. These are the former Liverpool (L) postcode kiosks that were 'annexed' by The Wirral in 1999 and became CH (L41 to L66).

    Again, these are the 'classic' metal style K6 kiosks only.

    To my knowledge, there are at least 32 examples in 30 locations. I will attempt to post these up by postcode area.

    I have many other similar photographs of the other Chester (CH) areas, notably in and
    around Chester itself and Flintshire/Denbighshire although these are outside the scope of this thread.

    L(CH)41, Woodside Ferry Terminal, Woodside. Also featuring the wonderful Ba Ba Braille Sheep, sadly no longer there!

    AngelCake,

    I'm afraid not, it has already been sold!

    They have put me on a waiting list should another one come in, however.

    Cheers,

    Looks like most of the red telephone boxes are 'over the water'
    Don't think there are that many Liverpool side.

    Edit:
    .. .. actually, I've just skimmed through this thread and we do have quite a few in L'pool - probably more than you realise. It just looked like there's a lot of them Wirral side.

    The last picture (OK it's not red), is still technically a kiosk. It is the K7A or "Oakham" booth which was installed from 1980 onwards at sites subject to persistent and heavy vandalism. It may not be everybody's cup of tea, however these themselves are now very scare and I believe this is the only one left in Liverpool (?).

    Does my Avatar qualify?

    The Avoncroft Museum, Bromsgrove has a collection of some 32 such telephone boxes.
