TA 0339 BEVERLEY MINSTER MOORGATE
(south side)
14/32 Lamp standard adjacent to
17.8.77 the Minster railings
opposite No 4
GV II
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.
