Listing Text


885-1/14/61 (North West side)
Lamp post approximately 5 metres
south-west of Town Hall porch


Lamp post. Probably contemporary with the 1910-11 Town Hall
(qv). Metal, probably cast-iron. One of a group of 5 of
identical design outside the town hall. Originally lit by gas,
later converted to electricity. Thick cylindrical base with an
egg-and-dart moulding below a baluster-shaped foot with
acanthus leaf decoration. Cylindrical standard with 3 globes,
the outer globes on the ladder rest with scrolled brackets to
the standard. An attractive example of historic street
furniture and important for group value with the Town Hall
which has some fine metalwork associated with the exterior.
