Local Philips MI80s

The MI 80 is an uncommon design in Derbyshire, although occasional examples do exist, especially in more rural areas.

This MI 80 is on the B587 Derby Road between Stanton-by-Bridge and Melbourne. The column (and adjacent, and very close, telegraph pole!) are installed on a rather steep bank. Ground movements have caused both to lean backwards by a few degrees, though they have been like this for many years without noticeably moving any further, so they are fairly well secured - famous last words!

 

The presence of a two-part photocell detector in this lantern's canopy suggests that the lantern is remotely-geared.

 
 

The remote settlement of Sterndale Moor near Buxton sees a small number of pole-mounted MI 80 lanterns employed.

 

This example is fitted with a Zodion SS9-DLS part-night photocell.

 

This second example provides illumination for a set of steps and a lay-by.

 

A somewhat discoloured Zodion SS6 all-night photocell is fitted here.
