We often hear tales of youths without any bladder control using our traditional red phone boxes as public toilets (confirmed by the smell the last time I entered one), but I think this idea is much better: a village in Cambridgeshire converted their phone box into a pub to have few drinks and a get-together the night before their village fête, calling it the Dog and Bone. Their old village pub, which had been popular with aircrew during the Second World War, had been sold - despite local opposition - for conversion into a house. The full story is here. Did they ring last orders, I wonder?
