14/4 Lamp standard in grass
17.8.77 verge adjacent to No 53
1824-1826. Late Georgian cast iron lamp standard made by John Malam of Sheffield. The
square, stepped base has a stilted arch to each face of the lower step and on
opposite faces the words "I MALAM" and "THORNCLIFFE IRON WORKS 1824". On each
face of the upper step is a wreathed shield with lion mask. 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.
