100. The A6, Near Homesford. Between Homesford and Whatstandwell is an independent petrol station with several interesting lighting units - probably the rarest being a first-generation Atlas Alpha 3/AEI Optispec One with two fastening clips attached to the shoe. Alongside this is a GEC Z9538 running a 55 W SOX lamp. Above the petrol pumps is a top-entry Beta 5. With the site now up for sale, the future of these lanterns is uncertain - let's hope that they can be saved!

Sadly, these lanterns were not saved, as far as I am aware - by 2018, the site had been cleared, and all traces of the former petrol station's existence had disappeared.
