Telephone kiosk at St Catherine's
Since 2000 almost all variations of telephone kiosks have been replaced by the present Jersey Telecom Limited standard kiosk. It is an anodized aluminium design finished in all yellow. Manufactured by Prosider S.P.A. of Ravenna, Italy, it is slightly wider than previous designs, this being to enable easier access by wheelchair users. To further facilitate this access the kiosk is installed on a flat stainless steel plate with anti-slip patterning.
Information culled from "A History of the Telephone Kiosk in Jersey" by Graeme Marett [PDF file].
To the right of the kiosk is a plaque commemorating Jane Luscombe's round the island swim in 1976.
