The green police box next to Sheffield Town Hall

Recommended Posts


Does anyone know when the green police box was first used there?

Is there any documentation on this quirky little Sheffield landmark?

Not exactly 'quirky', there used to be a lot of police boxes around Sheffield (and painted this colour). I am sure I have seen another thread on here with information about these police boxes, I will have a look round later.

Ahhh I must have missed that one. I was sat thinking this was the only one!

You are right here are two police box threads, I think the second one is two threads merged, that's why the title doesn't seem to fit at first.     ------------     https://www.sheffieldhistory.co.uk/forums/topic/46-the-blue-39police-box39-next-to-the-town-hall/

Many thanks for doing the leg work, it was the second of the two threads I was remembering.
