BEVERLEY TOLL GAVEL TA 0339 (south side)
14/24 Lamp standard in the pavement in front of 17.8.77 No 30.
1824-1826. Late Georgian cast iron lamp standard made by John Malam of Sheffield.
The square, stepped base has a stilted arch to each face of the lower step and on opposite faces the words "I. MALAM" and "THORNCLIFFE IRON WORKS 1824." On each face of the upper step is a wreathed shield with lion mask.
Then an octagonal step to the column in the form of a fasces-minus-axehead (symbolising a disused weapon of war). From a narrow collar rises a section modelled on Pompeiian bronze standard lamps, surmounted by a copper gas-type lantern of modern date.
