103b. The Crescent, Alfreton. At the end of this short cul-de-sac is an off-road communal area that, until mid-2019, was lit with an ELECO-Way PT 908 post-top lantern, running a 35 W SOX lamp. The lantern was fitted to a Stanton 10F concrete column, and the whole installation was in as-original condition. Fortunately, this unusual installation was pictured for posterity just in time - it was replaced in its entirety only a few weeks later. I had hoped that the lantern and gear might be saved for me; alas, as things turned out, neither were. As far as I know, this may have been the only PT 908 in the whole of Derbyshire; its nonstandard spigot (presumably) serving to reduce its popularity.

     

The GEC 35 - 55 W leak transformer ballast took up most of the available space within the column base; the capacitor having to be shoehorned in to the gap to the left of the Royce Thompson S400N two-part photocell relay.

 

The new 5 m tubular steel column supported an OrangeTEK Voyager 13 W LED lantern.
