What I can tell you is the museum have it on a ten year lease, I am sure John Endicott the Curator knows something history wise about this box. I can make enquires next week and let you know.

Also check out the website (when its updated) for more information  www.kent-police-museum.co.uk

The good news is I have recovered some more photos from my trashed hardrive.

Anyone notice that each side has mismatched windows?  It looks like the left one is fixed and the right one is openable.

I like the way having placed it in position, they've managed to hack a chunk outta the base already!!!!
When can we go and slobber over it?
Yah - saw that TG - answered me own question - sorry......

The damage to the base was done by the forklift, but it will all be repaired for the opening on the 10th Feb

A fantastic police box in a perfect location. The museum is the perfect place for it and what a treat for visitors and doctor who fans.

There's something about this image that reminds me of those photos of the model that appeared in the baker time tunnel. The ones where the woman is sitting on it.

The breaking strain is fast approaching, guns and riots.
Politicians gamble and lie to save their skins,
And the press get fed the scapegoats,

Hi everyone.
I am the Curator of the Kent Police Museum.
The box took some time to sit on the plinth, as the concrete lump underneath the box, was too big to fit nicely in there.
The box was saved from destruction by Ward Westwater, of the Civil Defence and Emergency Services Preservation Trust some years ago.
I don't know the location of where this box was in Glasgow, and I am not sure if Ward would know.
We opened today, 10th February, and have had 135 visitors today, many of whom came just to see the police box.
If you come to see the box, please make yourself known to me.

Welcome to our little mecca for Police Boxes, John.  Alas I am in the US, so I have to view your place vicariously through others.

Hi John
Welcome to TR2
I, of course, visited your sunny corner of Kent today with my son, and would like to like to thank you for your hospitality and patience. I didn't expect to see you pop here so soon, but it's great to see you.
This was the pick of our pictures:

KENTGLASGOW.jpg

Have a good look around here, there's lots of "Real" Police Box info, together with the builds
See you soon

Hello there, and welcome to TR2... I noticed you'd joined earlier today, nice to have you along!

Ward's a decent fella, must be said, a real Guardian Angel for the Police Boxes... including now, happily, the Crich box, which of course is the last original Mk2 Metropolitan Police Telephone Box.

I'm delighted to see your new exhibit, and will have to pop up from Brighton to see your Museum shortly.  Hope you enjoy your time here, John!

Dale.
