 Having called into The Lamb, a group of Cowboys and Indians at a Hen Party decided to investigate the historic telephone box in Wartling

 Community Spirit in Wartling!

The local community minded Wartling residents pictured above responded in large numbers to the Parish Council's invitation to take advantage of a road closure through the village in order to clear the road of litter and rubbish. The brunch was provided by Wartling Place B&B and lunch by The Lamb Inn Wartling

Councillor Chris Patterson

Wartling Parish Councillors are always pleased to hear the concerns of residents



 

A total of eight Cowboys and Indians were able to squeeze into the box at the same time.   Possibly a record for the Wartling Box? 


Sir Giles Gilbert Scott

Wartling's historic red telephone box designed by a local (Ninfield) resident, architech Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. I believe a member of his family lives in Wartling.

These telephone boxes are still a familiar site on the streets of the UK, Bermuda, Malta, Gibraltar and the Falkland Islands.

Other examples of his work are Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral, London's Battersea Power Station and the Bankside Power Station; now the Tate Modern. For more information about him, click HERE.
