The Village Phone Box
Acquired in February 2020
Rottingdean Heritage acquired the kiosk from BT for £1 on 19 February 2020. It is a red K6 phone box designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott who also designed Liverpool Cathedral and Power Stations at Battersea and Bankside (now Tate Modern.) It is a Grade II Listed Building, and the long-term intention is to use it for community purposes. Initially we intend to use it to promote its activities in The Grange. It is a popular feature in the village and visitors like to photograph themselves next to it.
The Phone Box is currently being used as a temporary book swap facility.
