Tideswell Telephone Box

Fountain Square, Tideswell, Buxton, Derbyshire SK17 8LF
Fountain Street Tideswell England SK17 8JX GB

Step into a traditional red telephone box, dial the past and learn all about the history of Tideswell. It is great fun and such a unique idea.

Tideswell Living History Group transformed the old telephone box to create a permanent oral history of this attractive and atmospheric village in Derbyshire. Listen to stories about the Postman’s whistle, the Co-op van, the Cow club and other interesting and fun stories of Tideswell past. And you can listen to the stories no matter what the weather is like. It is a must to do.

Also attached to the back of the telephone box is a great poem about how we communicated before Facebook and Twitter. It is definitely worth a read.

Opening Times: ALL Year
