Saxlingham Green phone box becomes Boudicca Way information point

A redundant red phone box at a village near Norwich has been given a new lease of life as part of a project to encourage more people to use a Norfolk footpath.

A new information point has been created in Saxlingham Green along the route of a long distance path, which runs between Norwich and Diss.

Officials behind the Boudicca Way project worked with Saxlingham Nethergate Parish Council to refurbish the phone box, which features information about famous artist Michael Andrews who lived in the village.

Local resident Nikki Terberg, who came up with the idea, said: 'I thought it would be good to use the one on the Green as an information point for the Boudicca Way because it is a starting point for many walkers.'

The information point includes QR codes where people with smart phones can access extra information about the route.
