Pole of the Month – February 2019

The prestigious award of Pole of the Month is probably, by now, posthumous (for this pole).
Man of few words and pole contractor Graham Morgan sent us this photo of this eight-armed beauty he was sent to recover from the railway yard at Ashford, Kent. He says he doesn’t know what to do with it. He could always put a stamp on it and post it to me.
Alas, one of the few remaining 8-armers is no more.  We should consider changing our name to Telegraph Pole Preservation Society.
