A couple of privates here

The GEC? on the rusty white vintage column is now running what appears to be LED and i think has been done up recently.

The Black Gas Lantern in the Terrace garden, is, actually running gas, on a nightly basis.

The chap with the White column has a couple of 35w SOX behind the garage visble if you move GSV down the back street and look.
The end cottage also has a private 35W sox Beta 5 on the rear wall too.

Strange to see such a cluster of private owned SL

In Rickmansworth, Herts, the local water works has a pair of Gamma 6s mounted on the gate posts. It is unknown what lamp type they use and if they are still in use.

A survivor in the true sense here:

The GSV image is from 2009 although the installation remains the same ten years later with the old Thorn Alpha 9? remaining in service. It appears the newer lantern above has never been connected up and looks to this day in great as new condition. The lower lantern is increasingly battered and the end of the bowl is broken now.

I think the old lantern was relamped recently too.

I imagine the new lantern would have been installed a few years prior to this image as Bury was installing 2600s and arcs around 2008 as casual replacements.

If you move down the road you will see several other columns with two lanterns, these have all been cut off leaving the boxes on the posts. It appears most have been through wired into the new box/bracket/lamp.

That's good to see in this day and age

Well this has now been replaced.

It was on borrowed time, having been working only sporadically during 2017, but it did survive the South Coast PFI, probably as being a result of being parish owned. It was however repaired and has been a reliable performer over the last 2 winters.

Last week this was installed in its place.


A Victorian square style lantern would have better matched the others in the location.
Light source is LED, but rather than an array, its a COB (Chip on Board) type. Basically a jumbo size single LED.

The Nether Wallop Parish in Hampshire maintains a number of 'pedestrian' lights, mainly Beta 79's as far as I can tell, but this one beside the Salisbury Road is still being fed MBF lamps.
