Lamp standard on the pavement in front of No 8

(Formerly listed as Lamp standard in the pavement in front of No 30, TOLL GAVEL (south side))


1824-1826. Late Georgian cast iron lamp standard made by John Malam of Sheffield. The square, stepped base has a stilted arch to each face of the lower step and on opposite faces the words "I. MALAM" and "THORNCLIFFE IRON WORKS 1824." On each face of the upper step is a wreathed shield with lion mask. 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
