Telephone Exchange, Horseley Fields
Telephone Exchange, Horseley Fields
This TE, which seems to have been rebuilt quite recently, is located in Horseley Fields, near Union Mill Street, just East of Wolverhampton City Centre. Its postcode is WV1 3DW. Interestingly enough, there is a photograph of its GPO predecessor on page 60 of the 2004 book "A Nostalgic Tour of Wolverhampton by Tram, Trolleybus and Bus: Part 3 The Eastern Routes". Unfortunately, the bus pictured in front of that TE saw only a few years service in Wolverhampton, whereas that TE is still there, having been rebuilt in the meantime, and the Strowger equipment inside it replaced by the digital System X equipment.
