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 W 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!
