Lamp standard in the
17.8.77 pavement at the
junction with
Laundress Lane


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 the word
"CROSSKILL". 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.
