SO2081 : Telephone box at Bettws-y-Crwyn

Telephone box at Bettws-y-Crwyn
Telephone box at Bettws-y-Crwyn
One of a number of telephone boxes located in isolated spots on the hills above the Clun valley. This one appears to be particularly neglected. Even in its heyday, it was probably little-used and in these days of universal mobile phone ownership, it appears, judging by the vigorous growth of the surrounding vegetation, that it has not been used for weeks or even months. A notice inside invites local community organizations to conserve this iconic box by buying it for 1 (without the telephone).

There are a number of minor roads following the ridges in the area above the Clun valley which make for fine cycling.
