You don't get telegraph poles like this any just any old B road.

And while you're on the internet, why not waste even more time by reading some poetry that doesn't rhyme.

Hit and Run

A flattened telegraph pole on the B5105

North Wales Police are1 looking for a car with a telegraph pole shaped hole in the bonnet following a hit and run in the early hours of yesterday, or the day before, recently.  The incident, along the B5105 near Ynyswen  left this antique, quadruple arms-wood former GPO pole mortally wounded as the driver callously drove off without stopping to administer carpentry first-aid.

The mortally wounded telegraph pole


Insult was added to injury for this elderly pole when an eye-witness later reported seeing a bedraggled telegraph pole enthusiast raiding the remains for souvenirs. 

Anyone with any information is requested to write it on a leaf and drop it into some water under a bridge. In strictest confidence.

1 probably not.

Got a corpse to dispose of or just an old sofa? Why not drop in to the Clocaenog - at any entrance just off the B5105 - and it'll be 30 years before anyone finds your late loved one..
