Local WRTL/Industria 2600s
The GRP-canopied precursor to the Delta saw very little use in Derbyshire (unlike in neighbouring Staffordshire, where the lantern is ten-a-penny), with the majority of the examples being seen in car parks and on roadways and footpaths in parks around Derby. All of these disappeared as part of various relighting schemes; some being part of the Street Lighting PFI. The 2600 can now only be seen in the wider County of Derbyshire; examples can be seen below.
This first example can be seen in Little Eaton; it is the only one of its type in the village.
The lantern's photocell was replaced in approximately 2014 - a SELC AcRo unit is now in place.
The lantern's patterned refractor bowl is clearly visible from ground level.
The Morledge estate in Matlock is accessed by a road that is initially lit by several 2600s.
A Royce Thompson Oasis 2000 photocell is fitted to this example.
These columns are 6 m in height, though the steep gradient of the road creates an optical illusion that causes the columns to appear taller.
This lantern is switched by a Zodion SS6 photocell. Notice that the post-top spigot adaptor fitted to this example is inversed - the above examples all have the grub screw pointing away from the lantern bowl.
