That stone looked like North Cotswolds; apols.

And Alan, my favourite episode of Midsomer is the one with a murder in a camera club, featuring rivalry between old-school film photographers and arrivistes using digital cameras. Filmed chiefly on location in Thame, I believe. It's also the only episode I've seen ...

Howard, if you'd watched Midsomer Murders you'd know what a dangerous area it is

Another Cotswold defibrillator box - who knew it was so risky living in the rural heartlands of England?

Another format - I suspect even rarer than AA boxes.

Station platform telephone box - saved in a carriage shed at Didcot.

Here is an increasingly rare sight - an AA (Automobile Association) box. These telephone boxes were used as bases for patrolmen who would go to the assistance of members in motoring distress. Eventually all received a key and could use the boxes. There were about 1,000 of them, under 20 survive outside of museums.
