25. Thorn Alpha 1s Photographed on Monday, 1st March 2010 on a closed-off lane leading from the B5010 near Elvaston Castle to the Derwent Power Station in Spondon.

What I think happened: As with the installation pictured on the previous page, the Opticells on these lanterns have proved an irresistible target for vandals, though in the case of these installations, the lanterns are at the increased height of 25 ft, though this doesn't seem to have posed a problem, as all of the columns visible down the lane beyond the locked gates have had their lanterns smashed - a real shame.
