81b. Tittensor Road, Barlaston, Staffordshire. Mounted to a building near the A34 end of this idyllic village is an AC Ford box and curved bracket supporting a BTH Rural Open lantern. The only difference I could spot between this and the lantern on the previous page is that this example still retains its prismatic refractor ring. The lantern runs an 80 Watt mercury lamp, which looked fairly new when I saw it working. A Zodion two-part cell is fitted these days, however the original Venner Time Switch box remains nearby - whether it still contains anything is unknown.
I had to stand on a steep slope in order to obtain this photograph!
