Local D.W. Windsor Milanos

Two columns, both supporting double brackets and twin lanterns, can be seen outside the imposing structure of St Mary's Church.

 

These lanterns all run a 50 W or 70 W SON-T lamp.

 

The upward-facing floodlight units (all running SON) on the left provide night-time illumination for the church tower.

 

These lanterns feature curved support arms.

 

Milano lanterns can also be found in the precinct area known as Cathedral Green. The building seen here is Derby's Industrial Museum; formerly, the Silk Mill. Building commenced in 1718, and was the first silk-spinning mill in England. Somewhat ironically, given the lantern's name, the top of the building resembles an Italian bell tower. The fact that silk spinner John Lombe stole the secrets of Italian silk-throwing machinery is perhaps a reason for the building being designed in this way. However, an Italian worker murdered him in 1722, in revenge.

 

Unlike the examples seen above, these lanterns feature straight support arms.

 

The installations are also arranged with only one lantern per column.

 

Another difference (apart from the noticeably worse cobweb coverage, owing to the River Derwent being located adjacent) is that these lanterns each run a CPO-TW lamp; probably 45 W. The angle of the internal Diamond Optic in this lantern suggests that it is facing the wrong way around for optimal performance along this footpath.

 
 

Several Milanos running an LED Light source were installed in the vicinity of St Peter's Church, in the heart of Derby City Centre, towards the end of 2014.

     

LED Milanos were also installed along the access road to the new 'Derby Arena' / Velodrome, upon its opening in early 2015. These lanterns are attached to tapering stainless steel (or aluminium) columns and so are painted a light grey colour, in order to match.

     

A double-armed example is installed in the central pedestrian refuge at the entrance to the site.

 

The two lanterns both run a 24 LED array.
