14/6 Lamp standard in grass
17.8.77 verge adjacent to No 41
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 an
eagle's head erased. 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.
