I was told by someone who works for EDF  (they came to look at our house as prospective purchasers)  that EDF will move a concrete pylon in the garden for free as long as there is no previous agreement that it would be sited there. ( ie a previous owners agreement would mean you would have to pay).  I am not that bothered about the one in our garden to risk the hassle but if it is important to you to move it - it might be worth a try - just be prepared to pay up if they find old paperwork agreeing to the siting.       Good luck if you do and let us know how you get on!

We had such a pylon right in front of the house. We paid around £1500  to EDF to have it moved .

I do not think they will do it for no fee . Why should they ?

Just contact your local EDF office and go from there.
