Lingen, a place of sparkling water, is a Herefordshire village in the wooded hills of the Marches on the border between England and Wales. Situated in the north-west corner of the county it lies just over five miles from the Welsh border. The parish includes the hamlets of Birtley, Limebrook and Willey. 

Lingen village offers not only a Chapel, Church, Public House and Village Hall, but also gives visitors the opportunity to sample stunning countryside walks with truly splendid views.

Our Lingen Village Phone Box is AGAIN under threat.  Unfortunately, this time it appears both the service and phone box itself are to disappear. A notice dated 07.09.16 gives 42 days from that date, to make any objections to the Local Authority Planning Dept. before removal.  The reason given is 'low usage'.   Last time a petition was raised and sent via our parish council to British Telecom citing the reasons for keeping the service alive.  Those reasons are as valid today as they were then.  After talks, BT then offered the phone box to the village for the princely sum of £1 (approx.) with the end result that no further maintenance etc. would be carried out by BT.  The Clerk of the day, took up the offer, so it's unclear why BT are assuming it's their property to remove? And surely it is worth more than the £1 (approx.) which was paid for it, it could even be possibly considered a Lingen historic relic!? wm 10.16

Never let it be said that 'lingenwebbers' don't look on the bright side! We've had several emails in regarding the fate of OUR phone box, one from Paul who says: ."......by the way, a restored box can be worth £2,800 so for £1 you got a bargain!".

Others giving ideas as to what to use the redundant phone box for such as a village hub to sell surplus garden veggies for community projects.  A defibulator cabinet was another one along with a post card shop, art gallery, book loan kiosk (better than reading the phone book) and floral display.                                                  

The worrying facts in all this is that two 'lingenwebbers' have emailed in to say the removal of the kiosk is not listed on the Herefordshire Council planning portal so it's not possible to object to its removal?!

And whilst new uses for a redundant box are great ideas, the way the notice is worded states that the actual box itself is to be removed! wm 10.16
