Day: 21 October 2016

BT wants to close 214 payphones around Shropshire. Thirteen of these are in the Ludlow and Clee area. One is the second most used phone on the countywide closure list and is used on average once a day. But, in an age of mobile phones, do we still need phone boxes? I think we do as several of these phone boxes are in mobile phone not spots. Shropshire Council is consulting on the removal of these and other payphones around the county. It is asking for views by Monday 28 November 2016. Please send your comments to community.enablement@shropshire.gov.uk. Here is the list of payphones in the Ludlow and Clee area that are proposed for closure.
