Local Thorn Rigas

 The Riga is a fairly rare lantern in Derbyshire; it was typically used as a replacement for Group B SOX lanterns prior to the use of the WRTL Arc lantern.

This Riga is located in Bakewell, and looks to have been installed for a while as the bowl is covered in cobwebs.


This Riga in Belper is also attached to a cast iron column.

 

The rear section of this lantern was slightly ajar when photographed.
