Electricity pylons built on unusual sites

There are some electricity pylons standing on very unconventional locations. So the pylon 3 of the line 9421 at Eislingen/Fils, Germany stands over a small river!

In Endersbach (Rems-Murr-district, Germany) a bigger electricity pylon stands over a little river.

On Huddersfield Narrow Canal in UK, you can travel with a boat through a pylon! Look on http://www.gorge.org/pylons/page1.shtml

(If someone has better pictures and more data of this pylon, please post them here!)


Furthermore there are pylons standing in lakes. So this 75 metre high anchor pylon stands in the artificial lake of Santa Maria, Switzerland.

In Lithuiana there is an electritity pylon in an artificial lake near Kekava ( http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=204284 )





Do you know further pylons at unconventional sites? If no, perhaps you will discover some in your next holiday. Keep your eyes open!

Does someone know where the pylon under which runs Huddersfield Narrow Cannel ( http://www.gorge.org/pylons/page1.shtml ) exactly stands?
