This brilliant idea - converting an iconic phone box into an art gallery - was a genial one. There are regular changes to the displays, and a book for visitors' comments.

We're lucky enough to live within walking distance of this little gem of a gallery. Always something interesting on show - at the moment a long awaited return of the "Moth man". Some amazing pictures of moths......I'll never view them in the same light again,...More

This has got to be the smallest art gallery I have ever been to. It is free . It is a phone box full of miniature paintings and an elaborate mosaic floor.
