(south side)
14/21 Lamp standard in the pave-
ment in front of No 40
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.
