What is this?

Recommended Posts

Considering moving house.

This is outside the perimeter fence of the property I’m interested in. 


What is it?

Something electrical obvs ... the coils unnerve me a bit, they’re going to increase the charge....

Still is it harmful? 

To adults? To kids?

its a transformers that step down the voltage to household voltage. They appear all over the country. No I dont believe they cause any harm apart from being somewhat unsightly.

Converting 33kv to 11kv for domestic use. Certainly wouldn't put me off buying a house. Doesn't look like it's on the property otherwise you can get a wayleaves payment for it

Thanks guys, that’s very reassuring. And agreed they are a bit unsightly. 

Any thoughts on this point. This pole is immediately outside the perimeter fence of the property.... It’s a new build, is there any chance that the developer has a bit more land but cut the garden short because of the pole? He’s have staggered the pole around it in that case, wouldn’t he?
