I don’t recall seeing many overhead electricity or phone lines in England, but having said that I do head straight for a pretty large town just outside of London. Maybe rural England is different.
Rural Brittany is very different!, there are overhead cables for everything!!.. and what a maintenance nightmare. Each year an especially designed tractor with huge loppers patrol the small country lanes chopping down any branches that are getting to close the to cables.
Thursday morning I followed a tractor ‘doing the rounds’ in Reminiac, and I wondered, ‘Those loppers are huge, they must sometimes get the cables by mistake….’
Be careful what you wish for! We have been without a phone line for 4 days !!…..at last, we are now back on line…
