Lamp standard on the pavement at the junction with Bainton Close

(Formerly listed as Lamp standard in the pavement in front of No 40, SATURDAY MARKET (south side))


Late Georgian (post 1826) cast iron lamp standard presumed to have been made by William Crosskill of Beverley. The square, stepped base has a stilted arch to each face of the lower step and on each face of the upper step is an eagle's head erased. Then an octagonal step to the column in the form of a fasces-minus-axehead (symbolising a disused weapon of war). From a narrow collar rises a section modelled on Pompeiian bronze standard lamps, surmounted by a copper gas-type lantern of modern date.

The lamp standard was moved to its current location in late 2017
