As old telephone boxes become obsolete, more and more are being transformed and reused to fulfil different tasks. We’ve seen phone boxes used as libraries for communities to store their books, converted into cash machine points and modelled as art galleries in recent years.
Those are just some of the ways that the phone box has been reimagined. But now, the first one has launched that is most appealing to us at The High Street Bakery…
Telephone box cake shop
In Argyll, Scotland a phone box has been transformed into a cake shop by friends and bakers Holly Ford and Bron Campbell!
The pair has revamped the telephone box and kitted it out with shelves to store their homemade bakes. For the ‘Cakes in the Call box’, fresh goods are baked every night and then loaded into the phone box the following morning. In the box, you’ll find a range of treats, including cakes, brownies, empire biscuits and plenty of delightful tray bakes.
The community is at the heart of the scheme and an honesty box lets the customers decide how much they want to pay for the cakes and baked treats.
Cladich is a small village, home to just 30 people but it seems that the telephone box is becoming a draw to residents living in surrounding areas and tourists alike. Argyll is a little far for us to go to see this baking spectacle but if we’re ever driving by, we’ll be sure to try one of the tasty treats.

The High Street Bakery isn’t as small as a telephone box, but that doesn’t mean that we sacrifice on the freshest bakes and a personalised service. We have four branches in Corby, come and visit us today!
