Booth No. 7A (Oakham type)

Introduced in 1980 this was an attempt to cut down vandalism on the UK's public telephone kiosk estate.

Similar in design to the open booths in the USA these were nicknamed Oakhams due to it's shape that resembles an Oak Ham tin.

Open to the elements you would not be using this telephone for any long period of time.
