Telephone kiosk information point
Rowen’s telephone kiosk, next to the Ty Gwyn Hotel, is a much-loved local landmark, and a popular meeting place. Some residents have told us that they did their teenage courting there!
The kiosk is a model K6 designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in 1935.
By 2013, most people had mobile phones, and our telephone kiosk was redundant. The Memorial Hall committee decided to adopt it under BT’s Adopt a Kiosk scheme. This was a very easy process, all done online and it cost us just £1. Click here for details.
BT removed the payphone equipment, painted the kiosk and installed new 24-hour lighting, with free electricity. Volunteers provided notice boards, new bilingual signs for the windows, a comfy floor mat, and a holder for our very popular local walks leaflets (See our Walks page).
Update July 2020… We have now discontinued the free leaflets. You can download the leaflets from this website, via the smart-phone QR code on the kiosk noticeboard.
We insured the kiosk as part of the Memorial Hall’s assets.
The kiosk was reopened in late 2013 as a Telephone Kiosk Information Point, known as T-kip.
Feel free to use the T-kip. It’s open 24/7 and you will find…
