Like you say, a rare survivor these days.

The fact that Ackersley Court is a private block, there is a chance that this light should linger on far longer than the SOX lanterns of Stockport MBC.

Their long lasting Beta Fives are certainly on the endangered list (along with the relatively recently installed 10m 'Cosmops').

I think the new lanterns are the 'S-Line' by Holophane. Although I'm not a huge fan of LEDs, these lanterns do look pretty good both day and night.
