POLICE BOX - DOORS OPEN

Following partial restoration, the Police Box was opened to the general public in September 2016, probably for the first time in its history.

 

Over 450 people came to visit, over the Doors Open weekend, which was far beyond all expectations.  Among them were two officers who had served at the box, during their police careers!  They had vivid memories of the box and were able to share their experience of what it was like to work there.
