No. 335 Caledonian Road, N1 at TQ 3065 8426
seen in 2002 July 13.
Note the NORth 1386
number over the door on the right.
This shop has now been redeveloped. No. 333 on the left is still there,
still a take-away, with a different name but the same phone number.
Wallington exchange building at 12 Melbourne Road, Wallington, SM6 8SE – TQ 2901 6410
seen in 2021 Mar 31.
This is probably the manual exchange building: WALington on one of the upper floors
and FRAnklin on the other, with equipment on the ground floor.
The manual exchange had to remain open during automation so the automatic equipment went in the
new part on the right.
At the Metropolitan Police Sports Club, The Warren,
Croydon Road, Coney Hall, Bromley, Kent, BR2 7AL.

of this Tardis.
There was a page about Tardises on a web site devoted to
Civil Defence and the relics of the Cold War.
I emailed them to see if they knew about the Tardis above and received the following reply:
The website is about five years old [ie. made about 1999], it was completed
by a friend of mine just as a pass time. I do not support it or have time
to amend it or update. I do not publicise any of my work or allow people
in to the numerous [physical] sites I own, with the exception of the partnership programme
my wife and I are involved in with English Heritage.
As for the police box at the Met sports ground, this is actually a copy
of an original box and not a very good copy at that.
I (to my knowledge) own all remaining Mark I Gilbert McKenzie Trench design
Police Signal boxes. The only original police boxes the Met Police have
are on loan from me.
We also loan boxes to various other English forces and museums, more than
we loan to Scottish Forces or museums so I am disappointed you think there
is a Scottish slant.
