A friends house in Yorkshire. I asked him if he put the phone box there because of poor cell service After he saw the photo he cleared out the cobwebs (I guess cell does work).

He has got the original mechanism still fitted inside the red box - GPO standard Kiosk No6. It only needs a bit of fag ash, cigarette ends stubbed out and a strong stink of urine to make it authentic. There are 3 slots for the money. Pennies, sixpences and shillings respectively (anyone remember 'old money'). Press button A when the called number answers. Press button B if there is no answer to return your money. OK, fine in theory, but the yobs of the day would block the money return chute with paper and later go along and pull the paper out, and if lucky they would have a small windfall.
