Old phone box turned into a mini library

 

Villagers in the picturesque Cheshire village of Great Budworth are the latest to find a novel use for a redundant telephone kiosk – a mini library. The once dilapidated kiosk has been carefully restored to its former glory with parts sourced from a specialist restoration company in Surrey. The plastic windows have been replaced with glass, and the cast iron framework rubbed down and given a fresh coat of red paint.

Once the renovation work was complete the phone box was then lined with shelves and donated books, courtesy of local residents, are waiting for the readers. The project was spearheaded by local Councillor Lesley Hopkinson.
