Red Phone Box

This is a traditional red phone box, and it is situated in Beltinge, it is one of a few left around the area.
It's a shame they are under threat as BT has drawn up a list of payphones which are no longer profitable because of decline usage due to the growth of the mobile phones.

Nationally 31,000 payphones have been removed since 2002.

Now BT is giving Kent councils the option to ‘adopt’ a red telephone box if they want to keep it for heritage or aesthetic reasons.

They have until November 1st to do so.

Hopefully this one will be saved!
