An 80w GEC Z8896 lantern. The control box is a Revo design, indicating the original lantern may have been a Revo type, probably a Diadem, as below. Switching is by an overhead wire.
Update- March 2006: the lantern has been replaced with an Urbis ZXU1.
A Revo Diadem lantern with 80W MBF lamp. The lantern carries a nice Revo glass globe. The control box is a Revo design, which suggests that they may have been installed at the same time. Control is by a SBL S300 cell on the pole, which is the CP for the overhead wire.
Update- March 2006: sadly, the Diadem has now been replaced with an Urbis ZXU1.
A GEC Z8896 lantern fitted with a 70W SON-T lamp and a SBL S300 cell. Alongside the lantern is another control box, with the name 'ACME' on the lid. I'm unsure if this is connected to the lantern, but I think that the supply comes through this box before it enters the main Revo control box.
Although the lantern is a Davis GR70 of 1990s vintage, there is an old Horstmann 2-part photocell eye remaining on the control box. This is no longer in use as the lantern has its own NEMA socket.
A GEC Z5715 lantern fitted with a 70W SON-I lamp and a RTE Oasis 2000 cell.
Private- a Phosco P178 is situated by the car park in Poundwell Meadow. The lantern is not lit, so the lamp type or control is unknown.
Also in the car park are some recently installed WRTL Arc lanterns fitted with 70W SON-T lamps.
