Telecommunications Heritage Group


Abdy Antiques - We sell collectable working British antique telephones, dating from the 1920s to the late 1950s. These include bakelite, candlestick, and the black telephones that you often see in 1950s films.

You can see these telephones on display at Elsecar Antiques Centre, which is located in Building 18 at the Elsecar Heritage Centre near Barnsley, South Yorkshire. Our e-mail is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Our Publications

THG publishes four A4 sized Journals each year, packed with news and articles that are written by our members, for our members.


A growing number of THG members have joined CNet - this is a telephone network that uses an Asterisk Voice Over IP (VOIP) system and connects people up all over the world through their broadband connections.  Members have successfully connected old exchanges and equipment to the network, and in the UK we operate using the old STD codes.  See
