Blakey Moor is home to the town’s only Grade II listed K6 Telephone Kiosk.
Designed in 1935 by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, the K6 is a classic square kiosk, domed roof design made of cast iron. Once a familiar sight on streets across the country, the red telephone box has now largely been replaced by more contemporary structures. Those that still exist are often much loved as a national British design icon.
As part of the Townscape Heritage project, it is hoped that the phone box could be restored and even given a new use.
