Update on adoption and restoration of Wanstead’s iconic phone box


The Wanstead Society has provided an update on plans to adopt the iconic K6 phone box outside Wanstead Station.

“As the Wanstead Society is legally a Small Charity rather than a larger, registered charity, we cannot have ownership of the box. However, the department of Regeneration and Culture at Redbridge Council has expressed an interest in assisting us. Meanwhile, the Wanstead Community Gardeners are making ever more exciting plans for its rehabilitation. Eden Project beware!” said a spokesperson.
