In 2015 Dronfield Civic Society purchased two K6 telephone boxes from BT for £1 each. The boxes were in an extremely neglected state. Then began the hard work to remove rust and layers of flaking old paint before the kiosks could be repainted, given new side panes and a gold crown. The K6, designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, represents a quintessential part of British history so we felt it was important to preserve the kiosks as items of street furniture for future generations to enjoy. In many areas the K6 has had alternative use as a mini library, art gallery, local
information point or for housing a defibrillator. Inside our kiosks is an information panel about the history of the K6 with details of where the Holmesdale and Coal Aston kiosks were made.
