I need to get hold of a pole to be used for a washing line. Presumably
a scaffolding pole is the appropriate choice as these don't rust?
It might seem a bit of a daft question, but where does one go to buy a
single scaffolding pole?
I can remember me ol' Dad diggin' a gurt big 'ole and filling it with
concrete into which he set a scaffoldin' pole to support one end of me Mum's
washin' line. When last seen - must be more'n 40 years later - it was still
standin' strong and proud. Hadn't even developed a lean! If Ben's offerin'
one gratis, snatch 'is arm off PoP !!
Heh heh - I'm looking at some fairly rusty ones through the window at the
moment. I think they're galvanised steel, so will have a fair life if the
galvanizing isn't damaged. You can also get ally ones at a price.

So then you do what the previous owners of my house did, cover it with
topsoil then dig another big hole next to it, concrete another massive
lump of concrete for a new post then repeat again... you could have
supported the house on one lump it was that big. ;-)
