6/192 Lamp post approximately 4
metres to east of Church
of Saint John the Baptist


Lamp post. Early C19. Cast iron. Square base with lion masks. Lower half
of shaft reeded, the upper half octagonal. Fern-leaf decoration to middle
and top of shaft. 4 curved brackets to support oil-lamp (missing), and a
projecting arm with moulded finial, probably a ladder support. Similar lamp
posts have been noted in Kirkgate (q,v.) and Gallows Steps, Kirkgate (q.v.).
They are the remains of the first system of gas works, mains and lights
installed by John Malam. The lights were turned on on 13th September 1824.
