One of UK's last AA call boxes now protected

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

There is nothing John Bell likes more than a drive in the countryside, especially on the rural roads of Wales.

And it is there he came across AA Box 161 - a reminder of decades past when mobile phones and the internet were science fiction.

The telephone boxes were a sanctuary for motorists in distress, where a single call meant help was on its way.

But of the hundreds across Britain just 21 remain - and now John's in Powys has become a protected listed building.

Box 161 has stood on the A40 just outside Crickhowell for about 60 years, its yellow paint and famous cross-gable roof design a beacon for drivers in need of help.
