SJ9594 : Old Telegraph post

taken 8 years ago, near to Gee Cross, Tameside, Great Britain

Old Telegraph post
Old Telegraph post
On the Trans Pennine Trail near Dowson Road which follows the route of the former the Godley Junction to Apethorn Railway.

This is not, as sometimes thought, an old signal but a telegraph pole - connected with signalling, but not actually a signal itself. On the top arms it is possible to see the 'J' shaped hooks onto which the porcelain insulators would be screwed to hold the wires. Below the top arms are slots where further arms would have been slotted in and attached.
