Dial H For History

The History Box is an old red phone box in Tideswell, Derbyshire, UK. The Tideswell Living History Group has transformed it into the Tideswell History Telephone – a permanent oral history audio heritage centre.
“In the days before mobile phones and before most people had landlines, this was one of the lifelines for residents to communicate in emergencies or get in touch with friends and family. The box is in a central location and has been part of Tideswell life for generations, with many stories to tell. It has been transformed to tell many more. We hope it will help residents rediscover their past and visitors to learn about the people’s history of Tideswell.” – Judy Cooke, Vice Chair of Tideswell Living History Group
