Lamp post approximately 5 metres
north-west of Town Hall porch


Lampost. Probably contemporary with the 1910-1911 town hall.
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. Group value with the town hall which includes some
good external metalwork.
