The unusual colour was by special agreement with the local landowner.

More information was sent by email from Carole:
"It was my late father, Fred Jackson, who was responsible for the green phone
box. He worked at the then Telephone Managers Office in Middlesbrough as a
sales executive and was responsible for most of the selling of phones to the Dales farmers of the area during the late 1940's and early 50's.
He hated the thought of a red kiosk in such a stunning area and worked very hard - obviously with the local landowner, to achieve the green box."
