Sitting innocuously in Sheffield's city centre, this tiny relic is just perfect for staring at. Not quite Dr Who, but lovely nonetheless

I used this box when I was on duty in the city centre right up to the end of the 1990's. It's a pity that all the others in Sheffield have gone, along with the Bobby on the beat!

Great to see this box still standing as so many of these have gone to the great Police Station in the sky. Spent many years dealing with lost visitors and at the other end of the scale regular drunks asking to get locked up for the night! Looks well after all these year just wish I was in such great...

A quaint little bit of history in the heart of Sheffield. It's so nice to see things like this remaining

I went out with friends for a birthday, and we passed this en route to the theatre. I think it is a beautiful little thing to spend five minutes or so looking at. We got a lovely group photo in front of the Police Box.

I pass this on the way to work and always hoped that more would be made of its uniqueness. I've seen a similar one in Scarborough but no where else. As a big doctor who fan, I always saw it as a tardis but the only thing I have ever seen it used for is city ambassador to hang out... More

Not much to say really. Its an old empty police box but is now the only one left of several that were spread around the city. Not been used for years but still a focal point and is presently being repaired. Hopefully it will remain for years to come as a reminder of the past
