The new company is taking over from where Bygones left of, but with an added focus on Telephone Boxes, Post Boxes and Lamp Posts. The crown jewel of the British web site is the spectacular British Police Call Box, as used by Dr Who.
Uniquely British have just taken delivery of another 25 Telephone Boxest, they are expecting the demand to be very high.
Each Telephone Box is unique and as such it gets treated very uniquely before it is sent out:
1) All the glass along with any silicon / putty is fully removed.
2) The wooden / cast iron door is removed for any repairs and re-glazing.
3) The telephone signs are removed and replaced with new high quality Perspex signs.
4) All internal fittings are removed, and the back board is re-sprayed and then refitted.
5) Each telephone box is fully sand blasted, primed and sprayed in a GPO red finish.
6) The roof interior is sprayed white.
7) The external crowns are hand painted in gold highlights.
8) Each box is then fitted with new refurbished cast iron frames to hold the new glass panes.
Fans of the original Bygones web site, www.bygones.net, need not worry about this change. The site will still be updated with the full Uniquely British stock list, but only available to order over the phone on 01227 767 453.
