Listing Text


842-1/2/252 (East side)
04/02/91 Sewer ventilation pipe adjoining NW
corner of 1-1A Barnstaple Street
(not incl)


Sewer ventilation pipe. Probably 1901-2. Engineer was Baldwin
Latham of Parliament Mansions, Westminster; contractor E Ellis
of Bideford. A tall, cylindrical iron pipe. Designed as a
tapering Gothic shaft, with pedestal, moulded base and
foliated capital; halfway up, a projecting moulded band
disguising a joint. The shaft is surmounted by an arrow
pointing the direction of the sewer. Above it is a ball with
open lugs facing in all 4 directions, the whole finished with
a tall finial encircled by a coronet. The shaft is moulded
with the maker's name; the upper part is illegible, but the
remainder reads GLASGOW. SARACEN FOUNDRY. It is matched by an
identical one at the other end of East-the-Water, in
Torrington Street (qv). It has the same maker's stamp and the
two probably date from the re-laying of the East-the-Water
sewers (including the installation of ventilators) in 1901-2.
(Bideford Weekly Gazette: 1900-1902: 23.10.1900; 17.09.01).
