Thanks for replies, Dove I can not have a retractable because the tree that I am currently using is totally rotten and falling down so I will unfortunately have to put a pole in it's place. I did look at the 2.4 metre post but did't think it would be tall enough once it was in the ground but if it is that height after being 'planted' it would be fine. The reason it has to be so high is because the other end is attached up high on a tree and if it is any lower it drags in the lawn.
Runnybreak and Verdon Thanks, I will try and source builders/metal merchants.
Totally agree about washing on a line, love to watch it in the breeze, and today is a very good day for it.
