169. Pritchard Drive, Off Packington Hill, Kegworth, Leicestershire Located in the grounds of a building that was formerly occupied by the Royal Bank of Scotland's Computer Centre are several 5 m columns supporting GEC Z5680 post-top lanterns. Although the buildings are still occupied, another company is now based at the site, and some of the land has been sold off for new housing, with the result that there may have been more of these installations that have now been lost through the redevelopment. The remaining Z5680s are likely to be still operational, although their lamp type is unknown. Where just these lanterns have been replaced in the past, lanterns such as the Abacus AM 202 and Tamlite Tamrise have been used.

One of the installations is pictured below; the column in the background, to the left of the tree, with two floodlights attached, would also have supported one of these lanterns originally.

 

Unlike on my own example, the copper paint finish applied to this lantern's canopy is still just about visible.
