A Telegraph Pole On The Coventry Canal

One on the Coventry Canal
Everyone  takes a picture of the short telegraph pole in a bridge on the Shropshire Union Canal but I've just noticed another much bigger telegraph pole. It can be found south of Hartshill at Boon's Wharf and is particularly impressive with it's side arms and some insulators still intact. A reminder of bygone days when there was a network of telegraph poles.

I look forward to being nostalgic about electricity pylons....
