Tyne and Wear HER(16590): South Shields, Whiteleas Way, police box - Details
South Shields, Whiteleas Way, police box
Located next to the Red Duster Public House. The box would have contained a telephone behind a glass window, which would have been used by the local beat constable to contact the police station or by the public. Painted blue metal. Not a full size police box (which contained a chair and desk). This is literally a box for a telephone, similar to the original police posts which can still be seen in London. Photographed in 2007.
