It's an old police box up against the town hall. Doesn't look like the TARDIS as its green for a start. It is a two minute visit and then its on to the Winter Gardens... or the pub!

In 1976 on my stag night I nearly got arrested for being drunk and the bobbie came out of this box. He let me go as I was getting married but got the summons through just after the day! I am a reformed person!

Always makes me so happy whenever I walk past this. Not a great attraction maybe, but I like it! A rare sight these days it definitely adds something to Sheffield city centre. Why not pop by and have a photo taken.

My name is Ahed, I can fit into many small boxes, I enjoy this however this was too small! I wouldnt consider calling the police in this box but the sheer size horrifies me!

As a former member of the Sheffield City Police, my years on the beat were spent using these police boxes which were situated strategically all over the city. They varied in size, from a small one in Eldon Street, to large ones such as the Town Hall box. They had a blue light on top, activated by the operator at... More

Last box of 120 I think. Worth seeing however an external visit takes 15 seconds and if there was an internal visit it would take 5 seconds. Its a good example of what was and the plaque attached explains its use. A nice little piece at the side of the Town Hall. Worth seeing.
