5 street lights. Installed c.1912 together with group along Marine Parade east and west q.v. 11/10. Cast iron. The first electric street lights in Clacton. The very tall posts have 2 double bands with central heart motifs, the bases with moulded rings, reeded columns, moulded circles, rings and beadlets, acanthus vase with moulded rings and reeding over. The posts are topped with large ring moulded lidded urns with finials, the urn sides with acanthus mouldings. 2 pendant brackets curve outwards from the urn rims, each with terminal urns with square heads and finials and support the circular lamps. The brackets are supported by inner continuous curved and angled brackets the centres of which are attached to curved and angled panels with acanthus moulding. The lights are attractive giving the appearance of double pendants and are a rare survival in Essex.
