by William Crosskill of Beverley. The square, stepped base has a stilted
arch to each face of the lower step and on each face of the upper step is a
wreath. 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.
