This is literally a small green box in a corner of Sheffield centre. You can't go in it or anything, only look at it. I suppose it is just a piece of Sheffields history...

An interesting little gem to visit. Who knew this would be nestled against the town hall. Well worth a little visit.

A police box nestled against Town Hall featuring historical plaque and an air of mystery. Rumour has it you can travel in space and time, Who knows?

OK it's only a police box but once there were many and now they are few. It is an oddity because of its rareaty in a similar way to steam engines and mechanical organs once all common now only preserved. It's a bit of history.

Interesting to look at of you 're passing. A little bit of history in the plaque. You won't need any effort to find it as it is on a main street corner.

This is only a police box but is nice to have a photo taken. There is a little sign which tells you a little about it. Also, after all these years it os still in good condition.

Police Box has been kept as a symbol how police worked in the past. Iconic small symbol of Sheffield next to Town Hall. There is a short description attached to the box explaining the purpose and history of them.

Nestled in next to the town hall this old police box harps back to a bygone age. Not much to see, just a plaque on the outside. You do always get the nagging feeling it's the wrong colour...
