This is part of the Government Telephone Preference System -
As for the OP I presume what your asking for is the maps/locations of your local telephone exchanges. You will probably find this quite difficult as the telephone companies are not keen on the locations of their exchanges becoming public knowledge.
During the 70's all BT telephone exchange were assigned bomb-threat procedures as they were considered to be a viable target of the IRA.
Personally, I wouldn't worry about the locations/maps. I really cannot see targeted attacks against telephone exchanges in the future, who doesn't carry a mobile phone these days?
Blowing up a telephone exchange wouldn't achieve much, people would just use their mobile phones.
And to the poster who said exchanges are being phased out due to new technology well your nearly right; the equipment inside the exchanges is being changed/upgraded to new technology but the actual exchanges themselves aren't going any where.
