Phone boxes are rarely needed in this day and age but they still form a distinctive mark in our towns and villages.

Not to be left to rot, some people have found perfect ways to transform them.

Brand new uses have been discovered including one found in St Hilary near Penzance in Cornwall being used as a book exchange.
