POlice box - THE FIRST VISIT

To avoid missing the rare opportunity, the police box was bought without seeing inside, relying only on an external once-over and a description of the interior from the helpful viewing agent who happened to be a former (Glasgow) policeman.

 

On 22 December 2015, the key arrived and we were able to see inside.  Luckily, all the original fitments were still in place - even the stool!
