101. Castle Street, Tipton, Sandwell, West Midlands. Located at the junction of High Street is an unsleeved Revo concrete column supporting an Alpha 1 lantern. Considering that Revo were actually based in Tipton, this column has not travelled far! A number of these columns were installed in this area in years gone by - now very few 'original' examples exist - most have either been sleeved or removed completely. It is probably only a matter of time before this example also fades into history as the original door has been replaced with one retrieved from a tubular steel column, and the concrete is beginning to crack near ground level. The other columns nearby are the Stanton equivalents of this column - these are also unsleeved, and also support Alpha 1s.
