Yes, Rabbit, this is a bit more complicated than it seems.

Stockport M.B.C  do not support the erection of mirrors at blinds spots. The reason given is that a mirror gives a distorted image and is not a true reflection, pardon the unintended pun. Thus actually hindering judgement and not helping it.  Having said that, there are a few that have been erected in the area either a long time ago or in defiance of this refusal.

My understanding of the situation is that in the event of an incident(god forbid) your insurance claim may not be as straightforward as you think. So wise to check with your insurers first. As if that's not bad enough the owners of the Telegraph Pole could have a liability in the event of an accident. So they will almost certainly refuse permission.

I'm going to have disagree with you Andrew, about the excellent pubs in Marple. There is Oldknow's and The Beer Factory but they have only been opened a matter of months and is it any coincidence that both these pubs were converted from shop premises by enterprising owners and are free from any brewery ties?  But where are the others?

Thanks All - Geoff I will send you an email.  Re. the issue with the speed of oncoming traffic, I can understand this, but it's quite probably a case of either being able to see what's coming (and maybe not be able to judge the speed accurately), or not seeing it at all. 
I'm going to our new house this weekend to check a few things so I will make a mental note of how I get on trying to pull off the drive and report back. :)

Ring Geoff on 07460 801101, he has cleaned my windows for about 3 years now. Good, reliable but does not use a ladder but the long pole type system.

Thanks for picking this up Geoff, I'd need to dig deeper too as I don't know the answer!
