Phone box at Dog and Duck Cottage
Phone box at Dog and Duck Cottage
On the Kerry Ridgeway, an ancient routeway which pre-dates the Iron Age and runs for 24 kms along the Anglo-Welsh border. England to the left (south), a spur of Wales to the right (north).

This is one of a number of telephone boxes located in isolated spots in the hill country of the Welsh Border. 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); or alternatively subsidising the continued availability of a telephone service.
