British Insulators


Insulator Collecting In The UK


On this website I showcase my collection of railway telegraph, GPO (General Post Office) and electrical insulators found in the UK. I have also shown pictures of insulators 'in situ' and in use aswell as a list of detailed accounts describing my insulator hunts. 

Please take time to read through the site and if you have any questions feel free to e-mail me at the this address:

Happy Collecting!
