21. WRTL Arc

Spotted on Saturday, 6th December 2008 on Occupation Lane in Woodville.

What I think happened: The column is another to have been hit by a vehicle, and in this case it looks as if the vehicle in question lost control on the adjacent roundabout. The installation would only have been about a year old at the time. It was installed (and the roundabout constructed) when the road was realigned as part of accommodation works for a new housing development...whatever one of those is! The impact has left the column bent and the lantern missing its canopy. The normally-sealed lamp optic shows signs of water ingress; clearly, the canopy has been missing for a while!
