A pair of iconic red phone boxes in Norwich city centre will go under the hammer at the end of the month.
Buyers looking to snap up their own piece of British heritage can buy one or both of the K6 red phone boxes in St Andrews Street, Norwich.
The booths, which stand at 8ft 3in tall and 3ft wide, have a guide price of £2,500 each and will be auctioned off on April 27.
Due to a preservation order, the boxes cannot be removed or have their exterior altered.
Buyers have been known to transform the inside space into coffee shops, libraries, museums, bakeries or to house defibrillators.
