As promised photos of the 2 river gates I replaced using a 10m and a 12m pole as purchased from you.
The river gates stop farm animals wandering up stream. The beck (river) rises some 2 metres, to just below the horizontal pole, when in flood and so there is a tremendous drag on it.
Hope photos of use.
Great to see what you've created with the telegraph poles. Hopefully it will keep your wandering animals at bay for years to come.
