The Phone Box

Goveton is home to a rather special Phone Box that sits in the centre of the village. Having learned that the box could be at risk of being removed due to lack of use, the box was purchased from BT for the huge sum of £1 in 2008 as part of their 'adopt a box' scheme. There were 2 previous attempts to adopt the box that failed so a lot of research and planning went into having the application approved and thankfully, it was. 

Once under parish ownership, it was decided that the box could be put to use as a library, or book exchange, and it has been well used ever since with people donating and taking out books regularly.

Give it a try!
