Spotter's Guide

The Spotter's Guide to Pylons is like an I-Spy guide; it provides information on a particular design, highlighting its purpose and telling you how to recognise it. Then there are also specific examples from around the UK, for you to spot on your journeys.

The pages are provided in PDF format, so they are ready for you to print off and keep them. They are in landscape form and can easily be filed, or folded in half to make a 2 sided A5 page.

(In order to read PDFs, you will need the free software Adobe Reader.)
