94. Rolls-Royce, Moor Lane. Located in the car park of yet another part of the Rolls-Royce works are several Atlas Alpha 3s mounted to Abacus 35 foot columns (the columns are definitely to an imperial height as they are taller than 10 m columns but shorter than 12 m columns). Seeing as the Rolls-Royce Survivor seen on page 73 is also mounted to an Abacus column, it appears that the company used Abacus as their default column supplier in the 1960s. The door on the column nearest to Moor Lane was on the ground when I visited - it appears that the lock had already given up as the remains of some insulation tape could still be seen along the top. With the base compartment exposed, the mercury gear could be seen - it was corroded but probably still worked.


The Elton Road Rolls-Royce site also has lanterns surrounding it that can be classed as 'Survivors'. Click here to see them.
