Poplars and Pylon near Ashwood, Staffordshire
Poplars and Pylon near Ashwood, Staffordshire
Electricity Pylons "spoil" the landscape all over this part of Staffordshire, but occasionally they can be "placed" just right to enhance the composition of a picture. Take a look at the satellite picture on Googlemap. There are more than 150 poplar trees very neatly planted on the plot, beyond which is the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal. Notice also the straw coloured embankment this side of the poplars. This hides the Smestow Brook. All along the brook clearances and dredging have been done in recent years, in order to reduce flooding of adjacent land. This work is ongoing and needs continuous maintenance.
