1384/0/10031 K6 Telephone Kiosk

K6 telephone kiosk. Designed in 1935 by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of King George V. Made by various contractors.
The K6 kiosk is made of cast iron with margin glazing bars to the windows and door. It is square in plan with a domed roof. To the segmental upper structure on each side is a crown, applied in relief, above a glazed panel bearing the word "TELEPHONE".

This K6 telephone kiosk is designated at Grade II, for the following reasons:
* An iconic example of industrial design, showing Giles Gilbert Scott's adaptation of Neoclassical forms for a modern technological function.
* A particularly good example of the type, possessing Group Value with the village hall, post office and red letter box, as well as a number of nearby Grade II listed buildings.
