51c. Kings Croft, Allestree. At the entrance to St Edmund's Church Hall stands a relatively modern tubular steel column topped with an older swan neck bracket and theremains of a Revo 'Bell Top' C14408/T lantern. The lantern has somehow been used to accommodate a circular drum-type light fitting, which is likely to run a 2D-style compact fluorescent lamp. Given that this modification has occurred, the installation is likely to be in operational use, though I can't help thinking how strange the setup must appear after nightfall!
The top spike of the bracket's finial is missing; it was probably damaged.
Although the column appears to have a rather crazed paint finish, this is actually a plant that has climbed the shaft.
Three rather long bolts secure the bracket's spigot cap to the column.
Confirmation that a 2D-type lamp is, indeed, fitted.
