Surrey’s Mini-Museum

May 29th, 2010 | By

About as far removed from the story earlier this week about the four short listed museums who are vying for the £100,000 Art Fund prize comes a lowlier idea for a museum.
In the Surrey village of Leigh, the parish council has paid £1 to buy the red, traditional telephone box that is on the green. According to the Leatherhead Advertiser, it appears the locals bought the kiosk and then decided what to do with it. The idea is now to turn it into a mini-museum. The Leigh History Group is considering what should go into their mini but shelving has already been agreed to better display the contents.
Is this anything more than a gimmick? Isn’t it really just the preservation of a telephone box?
