Telephone Hut

Historic wee windowless hut on small plot of crown land. It must have served as the phone office for about 7 nearby stations. Now on Te Araroa trail on the Braemar Rd and used by the long pathway travelers.

Currently only one mattress there. Can some kind soul drop off a second mattress for the other bunk?
