Plymouth City Mercury Lighting

Barne Barton- an M.O.D. housing estate is home to a number of old GEC Z8896 80w Mercury lanterns. The installation, as it is private, has been largely neglected over the years, and consequently very few of the old MBF/U lanterns work any more. Many have been replaced by modern SON lanterns at various times, on the existing steel Cohen columns. The columns are in quite a bad condition too in some cases. The original installation comprised GEC Z8896 lanterns running 80w MBF/U lamps, controlled by Venner MSQP timeclocks, and mounted on 5m Cohen columns. One survivor is still working, however it could desperately do with a new lamp and outer globe!
