Powerline and Pylon
Powerline and Pylon
The new double-pole route with the defunct pylon of the former route behind it.
Removing the pylons between Deeping and Bourne
A story appeared in the Stamford Mercury (LinkExternal link ) about the removal of 52 pylons between Bourne and West Deeping.

Starting in December 2017 Western Power constructed 3km of new underground cable and 6.5km of new overhead line, using 61 wooden poles next to the existing circuit.

June 2018 saw the removal of 9.7km of high voltage overhead lines that ran between West Deeping and Bourne, removing what the newspaper said "many people see as a blot on the landscape".

I am not convinced that the replacement of one overhead line with another is a substantive improvement, but it's underway so I went to record the demise of one line and the new one alongside it.
