How can you miss a phonebox in Gawcott? I’d say you couldn’t. Yet, I’ve recently spoken to somebody who was unaware that it’s a library. She lives locally as well. I love the trend to convert them to new uses. What a lovely way to use our iconic phoneboxes in the world of mobile phones, than to create a mini library.
