One feature in the vast array of services provided to Reading streets are BT’s telegraph poles.

New wooden poles were erected in Milman Road this week, such as this one in front of New Christ Church School’s Christchurch Centre. The notice on the trunk says that it was replaced on 29 November and tells you how to object if you have an interest in the land on which it is situated, passes over or is near to. There is no right of objection to replacements which are not significantly different from the predecessor.
