This Revo Horizon and it's shovelflood have bene on my list for a while. The site is likely to become offices for Hiscox insurance - but within the last 2 weeks the car park has been reopened temporarily.

Shiny new Furyos (which must have been installed this morning as SGS203s were on these columns yesterday) stand on Frinton Mews in Gants Hill. They replaced ZX1s on Fabrikat hockeystick columns after the completion of a footway improvement scheme. I can't really see what has been done here, but I thought it was rather wasteful to replace the lighting as well, especially as it was only 17-18 years old.

The Sainsbury's Savacentre in Beckton, Newham, East London has recently been refurbished and has had what look like LED lanterns installed in the car park, replacing a few WRTL HML400 high-mast installations. If anybody can identify these installations, I will be very grateful!

LED lighting has invaded the A127 at Gallows Corner in the form of the WRTL Luma, replacing 3 year old Iridiums, which replaced MA60s back in early 2009. Whilst this scheme might seem wasteful on the surface, I bet the savings the LEDs have on TfL's electricity bill compared to the SON Iridiums is amazing! I also saw one Luma dayburning and was quite impressed with the colour quality of the light! I don't think these are the prettiest lanterns I've seen though, especially in terms of the upward tilt! I also noticed that some SON lanterns on the roundabout (Iridiums and some SGS203s and ZX3s) were being replaced with Airtraces! I haven't got any pictures unfortunately because I didn't see them until too late, but next time I go that way I'll try and get some pics!

Midland Road still has a small surviving stretch of SOX, the best lantern in which being this GEC Z9454 installed on an S&L column.

Great Stanhope Street is lit by a couple of MA90s, the foreground one of which is mounted very low, but it could be running a 55w SOX lamp as opposed to the usual 90w.

On Manvers Street is an Iridium installed on an S&L column. It would've replaced an Alpha 3. Even so, I don't think it looks bad on this column at all and rather suits it to a tee!

Here's a bit of an abstract shot that I thought you guys would like - I happened to pass this fountain just at the right time so that it sprayed water level with the lamp post and make the double brackets and SGS203s look like they were floating on a column of water!

On Avon Street, by City of Bath College, this SGS203 on an S&L column stands. It probably replaced an Alpha 3, as Bath town centre seemed to use a lot of them until a few years ago, according to GSV images.

Christchurch Row, off New King Street, is lit by a GEC Z9530 on a swan-neck.

New King Street is lit entirely by GEC Z9454s, with a single GEC Z9531 near a small square of houses just behind and to the left of it.

These have been identified by Sotonsteve as Holophane eStilos (many thanks Steve). I saw these lit on Friday night and can confirm that they run SON (pretty bad really, as replacing the SGS203s, which also ran SON, seems pointless), particularly as some of the SGS203s were replaced with new ones back in 2007 in a casual replacement scheme.

Saw a lot of these on A31 in Dorset traveling to Cornwall.
Most of them were on in the daytime.

column isn't even straight. The Libra itself is possibly the only good thing I can find in this photo.

When I first saw this photo on the gallery page, I thought it was an SGS203 that had lost its canopy and bowl!  :lol:

This image was taken the day after the previous one, showing the installation over the road from the pictured installation which had an SGS203 installed. This obviously means that the new lantern was installed either later that day or early the next day!

Mile End Road just outside my university has started to lose its early 1990s SGS203s for these strange-looking lanterns which are being retrofitted to the existing columns. As you can see, the other side of the road hasn't been done yet, so I reckon these new lanterns must have only been installed over the last few days. The closest match I've found is a Thorn Oxane, but it looks too slender for the lantern pictured. The reason for their installation looks to be due to CCTV cameras being installed and the construction of a new student residence block just a little further down behind where the photo was taken (due to open in September). The columns also look to being having some sort of signage attached to them, as you can see from the fixtures installed on this column. I have also heard rumours that Mile End Road is going to be renamed the "Olympic Boulevard", as it is the route from Central London to the site of this summer's Olympics in Stratford, so maybe the retrofitting and signage may also be to do with that. It's certainly all go here now for the Olympics!

It looks like it could be an import or made by some small less known lantern manufacturer. I have had a good look and cannot find anything with clips like it.

Does anyone have any idea what this lantern is? It's a privately-owned (Sainsbury's) lantern installed earlier this year to replace a 7-year-old Kingfisher Lunoide which was damaged by wind, which itself replaced a 1980s SGS203 (one of which can be seen in the background) back in about 2005. The closest matches I've found are the Thorn Jet and Philips Alu-road, but those don't look quite like it either. It looks as if the lantern might have lost its bowl or a piece of its canopy, as it doesn't look complete to me. The side entry adapter which would've held the original SGS203 definitely seems to have gone walkabout.

These lovely old CU concretes are still clinging on around Epping Forest. This image from October 2011 shows two examples with an MA90 and an SGS204. There are some examples behind me with Eleco lanterns installed similar to the ones that I've pictured before, but I didn't get a shot of them as I didn't want to take too many photos like this in case the group I was with thought I was a bit weird! The Urbis Saturns on the High Street behind make for an interesting contrast!

Here's a shot taken back in October 2011 of one of the new Stainton columns with an SGS203 installed that was erected when Mile End Road (running left to right behind the photographer) had a new cycle lane added to it and this junction with Cambridge Heath Road was realigned. Pretty neat, I think, and using the same lantern is pretty good and loyal practice! This was short-lived, however, because the SGS203s you can see on Cambridge Heath Road in the background are now (February 2012) being replaced with post-top Urbis Evolos. The unusual grey building in the background is the Sainsbury's multi-storey car park, in case you're wondering!
