Notices for 2nd June 2023

In another act of madness, I chose to take it upon myself to document British electricity pylons (steel lattice high voltage transmission towers). The scope of this project is far more limited than that of documenting computer keyboards, not least because there is far less information available to work from, and it has reached the point of diminishing returns. However, in less than a year it has still grown to become much more than I was anticipating, especially with the help of pylon veterans Ian McAulay and Jon Bruford. To those among us who find these structures fascinating, there is bound to be something of interest to all of you. I am not an engineer, so it’s not a hugely in-depth treatment of the subject, but hopefully it will make a little piece of life a little less mysterious.
