Welsh Telephone Box

Mindful of how you like an old phone box, we found this beauty whilst in Wales at the weekend. It was standing in these idyllic surroundings! We have more images to post later on from our visit to Monmouthshire, which is just over the border from England into Wales.

This is a view of the church at Skenfrith where we stayed. A most wonderfully peaceful and beautiful part of the world. Awash with ancient castles and churches as well as abbeys. We can't get enough of visiting here, it's only about an hour and a half from our home so we really can get here easily. We were lucky to have a perfect day with not a cloud in the sky. Not the norm in Wales!


  1. Those ubiquitous red phone boxes. That's the best place for one, though; out in a field. Then I don't have to answer it. Maybe we should all buy one and set it up to only take calls from salespeople and then put it out in the middle of a field.

    The philosophical question begs to be answered of course: If a telephone rings in a red booth in the middle of a field and there's no one there to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Great photos! Beautiful place. And I feel silly today.

  2. A classic red phone box. I like it, although I would probably crop the photo a little different. Cropping away the sky to focus more on the phone box.

  3. wow, it was really sunny ! Does the phonebox works ?

  4. Doesn't look like the phonebooth has many costumers:-) This area sure do look like a place worth visiting!

  5. This place is sooooo beautiful! How lucky you are??
