    Hi can anyone tell me why these old scaffolding poles would be attached to an
    extension and into the neighbours house.. I'm interested in the house but have some concerns these in particular as no other house has them if anyone has any thoughts I'd really appreciate it as I'd also be interested in getting them removed thank you

    Could be for access to roof when boarded, seen scaffold across conservatory before (permanent) for maintenance, looks ugly though.

    Why not ask the house owners?

    The nearest one looks more like a pipe with a bigger pipe over it. I would want to see in whats on the inside at that location.
