Wiltshire swap-shop phone box twinned with Devon

A village in wiltshire is holding a ceremony to twin its former phone box with another 150 miles away.

The traditional kiosk in Marden, near Devizes, was bought from BT for £1. It was fitted with shelves and is now being used as a swap shop for everything from books to vegetables.

Organiser, Lalu Carter, says the Wiltshire phone box will be linked with another redundant phone box in her parents' village in Thurlestone, Devon, and has invited residents to come to Marden to celebrate the pairing.
