Decorative telegraph pole

By Jennifer McCann

This telegraph pole, or perhaps telephone line pole, is located in Moorside, off Beehive Lane.

As you can see, it is straining a little under its load.  It has a splendid top to it which I have not spotted anywhere else.  Perhaps you have one near your home?

  • The telegraph pole is located in far corner of the front garden of the house we lived in in Moorside from 1968 to 1989. In all that time, I think I only witnessed a BT person shin up the thing once! And I never noticed the rather ornate top to it – which only goes to show how unobservant we can be!
