How to tell which cabinet is referred to ?


[link to this post]
 
eg, I know that my cabinet is P**.

How can I tell which cabinet this actually is at street level.
We have a few around us.

Is there a map somewhere?

Thanks

The number is invariably stencilled on them the cabinet in white paint. Sometimes visible on Google StreetView.

Ok. Good idea.

I thought I'd previously seen an interactive online map. Maybe it was just a regional offering.

Exellent.. I've found it !

The correct number is stencilled on the "old" cabinet next to the new fibre box. Not the fibre box itself.
Is that correct?

Just out of curiosity, is there an actual cabinet mapping engine or map web page which can provide the information about cabinet numbers in my locality?

Or better still are there any docs available online (leaked/otherwise) which can give us this info on Cab numbers & locations?

There was one, but OpenReach told them to take it down.

Can you remember the old url / site name? I'm wondering if Google had a chance to crawl it and therefore may have cached some of the useful search results/data wink
