BT Box - Pre 1980?
BT Box - Pre 1980?
I have noticed quite a few of these dotted around Staffordshire and knew exactly what they are used for, but was confused because they had 'GPO' stamped on the front.

This metal box was installed when the General Post Office was the leading supplier of telecommunications before the establishment of BT in 1980.
