Telegraph Pole of the Month – Dec 2010

Telegraph Pole of the Month December 2010

You normally only ever see poles like this alongside heritage railway lines.  But this is one of a few such poles that run from the village of Clawddnewydd along the B5105 down towards Ruthin in Denbighshire, North Wales.  And even more amazing, this one is still in use.  The second lower left insulator has a telephone wire attached.  I went and photographed most of these recently and I don’t expect they’ll be left up much longer – replaced by an anonymous pole with a non-descript plastic junction box like all the others.
