Compton’s Red Phone Box Becomes A Hi-Tech Resource For Walkers

Compton Abbas’ welcome centre for walkers has opened – in an old red phone box.

The Parish Council has moved mountains to install free WiFi, so ramblers can download maps and walking guides to their phones using QR codes.

Cllr Sarah Warren says the group has secured a new walking route between Fontmell and Compton which avoids the A350 or steep footpaths.
