We've still got the original victorian mains line coming into the house

When I moved into my house about 20 years ago, the incoming power came via bare copper wires fixed to steel brackets on the gable-end. Whoever converted the village to underground cabling just cut down the overhead cables in the street, and hitched the bare wires to a cable that they routed across my neighbour's roof.
