So it got a bright new big red 'D' to show that it's a defective pole.
Poles are tested by someone hitting them with a big hammer, if nothing untoward happens, the pole is passed as safe and sound.
If the hammer sort of sinks in- like this did- it doesn't pass!
Being a defective pole doesn't actually mean anything will be done about it though. This pole already has a few red 'D's, but this is the 1st time the hammer actually sunk in!
It is an old pole. There is enough of the pole infomation still visible to see that it was put up in 1951.
