Late Georgian (post 1826) cast iron lamp standard presumed to have been made
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.
