These much ignored pieces of rural and urban furniture finally have a website of their own.

This is not the site to visit for technical information pertaining to telegraph poles. You'll find nothing about 10KVa transformers, digital telephone networking or even so much as a single volt.

This is a website celebrating the glorious everyday mundanitude of these simple silent sentinels the world over.

We don't care what the wires contain either. They all carry electricity in some way be it the sparky stuff which boils your kettle, or the thinner stuff with your voice in it when you're on the phone.

I'd like a mug please

A Telegraph Pole Appreciation Society mugGranted it may not still be Christmas by the time you're looking at this.  But getting all the photography stuff out again to take a spring or summer-themed photograph is asking a bit much.  Especially when me and Mrs Telegraph Pole fell out over the taking of this one.  Anyway, declare loudly to the world down at the building site/office/church coffee morning your love of telegraph poles with one of these all-new Telegraph Pole Appreciation Society Mugs.  £8.99 all in, incl postage and all the stuff listed below...

  • Empty bit in the middle to hold said tea/beverage of your choice.
  • Handle on side.
  • Telegraph pole image on one side.
