My name is Ahed, I can fit into many small boxes, I enjoy this however this was too small! I wouldnt consider calling the police in this box but the sheer size horrifies me!

As a former member of the Sheffield City Police, my years on the beat were spent using these police boxes which were situated strategically all over the city. They varied in size, from a small one in Eldon Street, to large ones such as the Town Hall box. They had a blue light on top, activated by the operator at... More

Last box of 120 I think. Worth seeing however an external visit takes 15 seconds and if there was an internal visit it would take 5 seconds. Its a good example of what was and the plaque attached explains its use. A nice little piece at the side of the Town Hall. Worth seeing.

Sitting innocuously in Sheffield's city centre, this tiny relic is just perfect for staring at. Not quite Dr Who, but lovely nonetheless

I used this box when I was on duty in the city centre right up to the end of the 1990's. It's a pity that all the others in Sheffield have gone, along with the Bobby on the beat!

Great to see this box still standing as so many of these have gone to the great Police Station in the sky. Spent many years dealing with lost visitors and at the other end of the scale regular drunks asking to get locked up for the night! Looks well after all these year just wish I was in such great...
