7B. Station Road, Spondon. By a new housing development an old ESLA copy is still installed, but derelict. I believe this lantern is the GEC's version of a directional lantern. The mirrors were arranged in strips as opposed to small squares and trapeziums as in ESLAs, but no mirrors remain in the lantern today. The column does not look like a lighting column, as it is very thin and joins can be clearly seen in the casting. The swan neck is also unusual - it has very little decoration.
I wish that MA 90 could be further down the road - it is right in the way!
