A telegraph pole farm in the Orkney Isles

A telegraph pole farm in the Orkney Isles.

 

The Orkney Isles are the source of most of the UK’s telegraph poles. Telegraph Pole Farming is a mainstay of the economy in these harsh northern isles. The posts seen here are nearly ready for harvesting. Every autumn, migrant workers from Eastern Europe work night and day picking only the tallest, creosotey poles with the most succulent insulator fruit.

A World without Telegraph Poles

Before you think they’re just dull sticks with wires, take a look at Cerrigydrudion High Street below. For the second picture we popped over to a parallel universe where electricity hasn’t been invented.

Cerrigydrudion High Street WITH telegraph poles

 

 

 

Picture 1 :

 

Our Universe, where telegraph poles flourish in total biodiversity. (N.B. In this universe Wrexham are an under-performing non-league, football team)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Parallel universe without the street furniture.

 

 

Picture 2:

Cerrigydrudion in a parallel universe
(N.B. Wrexham 4 times Champions of Europe)

 

 

Apart from the football differences, I prefer our universe version of Cerrigyrdudion with all its aerial clutter. I forgot to say, a pint of Timothy Taylors is 1,550 Euros in the parallel White Lion.

Bad karma: we can’t find that page!

You asked for {%sh404SEF_404_URL%}, but despite our computers looking very hard, we could not find it. What happened ?

  • the link you clicked to arrive here has a typo in it
  • or somehow we removed that page, or gave it another name
  • or, quite unlikely for sure, maybe you typed it yourself and there was a little mistake ?
