Lamp post to south-east of Town Hall


Lamp post. Probably contemporary with the 1910-11 town hall.
Metal, probably cast-iron. One of a group of 4 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 right and left on the ladder rest with scrolled brackets
to the standard. An attractive example of historic street
furniture. Group value with the town hall which incorporates
some fine external metalwork.
