38. Lows Lane, Stanton By Dale. Along this road are a lot of Stanton 8 m octagonal columns, many of which have not been sleeved. This road should have Stanton columns along it really, as the factory they were produced in is on this road, however two columns along the road are made by Concrete Utilities...wait a second... Concrete Utilities? Outside the Stanton factory? Although it sounds unthinkable that anyone would do such a thing as to put a rival company's columns right outside another company's factory - someone did! In the days when the laying of the columns was planned, Concrete Utilities found out about the plan and offered at least two of their columns for a reduced price to the authority, in order that they could have a 'dig' at Stanton! Needless to say, Stanton were not terribly pleased about these columns being there! One column is lit with an Alpha 4, the other an Alpha 9. I was expecting there to be more CU columns - maybe the drivers of some of the Stanton lorries mysteriously 'lost control' of their steering wheels as they approached them!
Just to prove it...
