Here is an 11kV to 415/240V step-down transformer on a pole near Beeston Castle, Cheshire. We don't have much overhead power distribution in the UK, except for areas such as this.

We usually have 20kv as primary voltage in this sort of use.

Overhead distribution is very common here in the US. Three phase 13.7kV is common for main secondary (from substations), while 4.6kV (one phase to ground from a three phase system) feed residential primary, with 240/120V secondary going to residences.

Do not argue with an idiot.  They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
