I've not gone around Edinburgh again, visiting all the police box locations, to see which boxes have been removed following recent sales.  However, Neil Lawrence has now sent me the message below.

Longstone and Shandon Crescent

"I see that the Police Boxes at Longstone and Shandon Crescent have been remove in the last year.  One has re-appeared on the south side of George Square as a coffee kiosk.  Do you have any idea what has happened to the other one?"

Neil Lawrence, Fountainbridge, Edinburgh:  June 26, 2014

Reply to Neil

Hi Neil. 

1.  I don't know where the other police box that you mention is now.  Perhaps somebody will find it then send a message to me.  If they do, I'll add their message to this page.

2.  You refer to the new box, installed this year at George Square.  I took photos of  that box being installed at the SW corner of George Square early in 2014.  I passed it again a few weeks later and photographed it in use as a coffee stall.

I spoke to the person serving the coffee and asked him if he knew where the box had been situated previously.  He said he understood that it had come out of storage.

Reply to Neil

Hi Neil. 

I'll see if I can discover where that Police Box came from.  However, I'll not add Straiton to the list of locations above.  I'm only listing the boxes on the streets in Edinburgh on that list.

Thank you to Neil Lawrence for writing again.

Planning Applications

"I checked with the Planning Department today.  Lots of applications  for siting police boxes at new locations have been refused or withdrawn"

Lauriston Place and Morrison Street

"A couple of Applications have been granted, but the police boxes have not materialised at their new locations, outside the Blood Donation Centre at Lauriston Place and opposite the EICC extension on Morrison Street."

Cowgate

"The police box on the Cowgate, at the foot of High School Yards steps, is away,  It is due to re-appear further up the road near the morgue, pretty much where it used to sit before they moved it.

The move is apparently something to do with bringing it inside the boundary of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Straiton

"The police box that I saw at Straiton must be a new addition, as I don’t see it on Aerial Photos or Google Street View, It's an interesting one as it had the old light on top, which is pretty rare.

I'll get a picture when I head up to Stewart Brewing next.
