146. All Saints' Church, South Wingfield Installed on the path leading to the main door of this quaint little village church are two Stanton concrete columns. One, a square-based 10F-type supports a Revo Prefect; the other, an octagonal 1805-type, supports a GEC Z8591. I do not know whether these installations are still used, as the current limited pattern of services at the church mean that there would not ordinarily be any congregational groups meeting in the evenings or in the very-early mornings, although a GLS lamp is fitted in the Prefect, and so the lights probably are operational, as and when required.

 

Oddly, the bracket supporting the Prefect does not overhang the path, but is instead positioned in parallel to it.

 

The column is showing signs of spalling at its joint with the bracket.

 
 

The reflector appears to be quite badly corroded from ground level. Then again, as the bowl is missing (or perhaps one was never fitted), this is not surprising.

 
 

The 1805 column's bracket is positioned more appropriately.

 

This column is also cracking badly at the bracket joint.

 

The Z8591 sports an unusual clip for its polycarbonate bowl.

 
 

Aside from requiring a clean, the lantern is in good condition. I assume that, if this lantern is still operational, it will also be fitted with a GLS lamp.
