telegraph crossings have always been a bit of a wild west for me.
While I can easily go to a telegraph cross in my city, and I’m always in the mood to explore, the idea of going across town is far more common in the rural areas of the UK.
If you have no choice but to travel to an overseas location and have to find the nearest telegraph point, you may want to check out the telegraph crosses of the world.
Here’s why you should NEVER go to telegraph crossed in your city.
The roads are rough, but you will get there.
It’s a pretty easy thing to forget about when you’re walking through the countryside on a Sunday morning, but I’ve had my fair share of telegraph-crossers.
The majority of the crossing is done in a hurry and you don’t really have much time to consider which telegraph station you’ll be at.
If that’s you, don’t be afraid to take the bus and make the crossing in one piece.
Even if you get stuck on the road, you can usually make it out in one go with a friend or a car.
If the roads are really bad, the crossing can get pretty hairy and it’s often the best thing to do if you want to see where you are.
It takes more time and effort to cross the country and the roads can get really rough.
If it’s a short walk, it’s worth the risk to cross to get the telegram.
The telegraph wires are expensive.
There’s always the chance of being left with a tonne of telegram wire.
If so, you’ll want to look at the cheaper option of getting a cheap, cheap, low-voltage cable and the telegrapher will be the first to say ‘I’ll have your telegram’.
In many cases, this is a good deal, as the wires are cheap and the cable can be sent up to 200 miles away.
