From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1959 architect Neville Conder was commissioned to design a new box. The K7 design went no further than the prototype stage.(wikipedia needs updating!)

Avoncroft Museum, home of the National Telephone Kiosk Collection
If you are interested in telephone kiosks, old telephones or telephone exchanges then a trip to the National Telephone Kiosk Collection at the Avoncroft Museum in Bromsgrove is well worth a visit.

Here is the K7 box on show at the museum, one might be forgiven for thinking this is a KX100 or moderns kiosk, but that’s wrong. This deign of box dates back 1959, very few (12) were introduced and only two are known to exists. This being one such example.

Unfortunately due to restriction of Covid 19 all the kiosks were locked up and access limited, sorry for the poor images at this time.
