46. Sidmouth, Devon. Thanks to Stephen Rowe for sending me this information. Along the seafront are a number of old lanterns, originally tungsten, followed by 125 W mercury and now running on SON. The columns are wooden, and unfortunately are becoming dangerous from being exposed to the elements for years. Replacement wooden columns would be too expensive, so it appears that steel will be the choice of material.
Replacement of the old lanterns and columns started in late 2004...
The new installations have scrollwork between the brackets and the columns. Some of the locals do not like it.
The new lanterns are based on the Urbis 'Victory' design.
