All these lights still remain in place last time I checked in recent weeks.

The conversion to LED in Wiltshire is being prioritised to those areas where re-lamping was carried out longest ago. This has meant that only some areas of Salisbury for instance have been treated, with the crews due to return later this year to finish off. Amesbury on the other hand has been finished entirely and was done before Salisbury.

My village north of Salisbury still retains its discharge lighting. With only about 50 lanterns, I don't think the village has ever been re-lamped entirely in one go, its probably been done piecemeal on a street by street basis, I suspect when one or more lamp fails. There are are usually around 3 failures each winter.

In the last 6 weeks however, there have been 5 failures, an unusually high number and all grouped close together. Looks like the lamps are getting to end of life. There are also a couple more failures of the lighting at the junction with the A road into the village. All have been reported,  I was half expecting that this would bring forward the LED conversion. None have been repaired after a month, so it looks like they will be left until mass LED arrives.
