Pylons over Hattersley


These pylons (or towers as they are known as in the electricity transmission industry) form an electrical bridge over Ashworth Lane at Hattersley and across the site earmarked for a new Tesco superstore before marching on towards Harrop Edge.

A source I'm unable to name told me that this line was due for renewal in 2011 and opined that if a supermarket was to built here then their route would need to be realigned.

A wider view of these pylons can be seen on Geograph.

A closer view of the top of a pylon can be seen on Hyde DP Xtra.

Superstores... First time I've seen an electrical bridge here and it's a very good idea.

Reminded me much of home, wide country sight, sound on these electrical lines during rain ... A peaceful Sunday for you.

What a clever bridge. I never thought of these towers this way, but they are certainly bridges in every sense of the word. Great post.

we have quite a few too. Some people say they cause cancer. What do you think?

This makes interesting reading... I wonder which route the 'towers' will take when moved?
