Miskin Phone box

Miskin Phone box

The Phone box in Miskin is a grade 2 listed building

It is K6 type telephone box designed in classical style by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, architect of London.

Whilst this box has embossed George VI crowns (which date from 1936 onwards) this box was not actually installed until 1955.

In 2021 the ownership of the box was transferred to Pontyclun Community Council who in conjunction with local volunteers have repurposed it to house a community defibrilator.

Miskin Post box

Across the road you can also find a Post box dating back to George V (1910-1936). It is a Caron Company B size post box and if you look closely on top is what is left from a sign holder. It is not known whether this post box had a sign on it, but where they did these usually gave directions to the nearest post box.
