In the corner of my Vicarage front garden. I just happened to look out and saw them busy drilling. I suppose if they had knocked to let me know they were starting work I would have felt obliged to make them a brew....

I did a spell with the pole erection unit when they were first introduced, back in the mid 1960's. And a spell, prior to their introduction, when we dug 'stepped holes' to accommodate the poles.

I am sure the former made commercial sense, but I far preferred the physical activity afforded by the latter.
