A list of Boxes and Police Posts in Exeter, together with a history of the Exeter Box and Post network can be found here:
The page includes a photo of the Police Box at Exe Bridge (as posted earlier by Domvar) and the police post located at Paris Street.

The list isn't as detailed as the Met archive list, but is a good starting point should anyone want to start researching the Exeter Box and Post network.

Looks like a later model much like the later Newcastle boxes. Think this is a police training centre. Exeter 1930s
