The last red telephone box in Crowland has been saved after a deal between parish councillors, South Holland District Council and BT.

Confirmation of the deal to buy the phone box in West Street for just £1 was given at Monday’s annual meeting.

It follows an online campaign to save the phone box, designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott to mark King George V’s Silver Jubilee in 1935, launched in January by town resident Daniel Abbott.
