9. Repton Rd, Willington. At the edge of this village is a lone Concrete Utilities 'Estate Minor x' column supporting an Arc 3 bracket and top-entry Beta 5 lantern. The rest of the columns along the road are modern steel 6 m columns. I tried to photograph the manufacturer's nameplate below the door, but it doesn't show up too well here. The column's inspection door is secured using a stainless steel 'Tespa' band; the column's original drop-latch lock having failed.

Update: 22nd May 2005 - this, and all of the other concrete columns on this road are all being replaced. The new columns are all 6 m and are fitted with WRTL Arcs. The old columns have all had blue tape wrapped around the doors, but I'm not sure why this has been done as the locks are still fitted.

I returned a week later, and the column (along with all of the other concretes on the road) had been removed.
