Stink pipe, St Julian's Farm Road
Stink pipe, St Julian's Farm Road
If I'd thought about this at all, I'd vaguely assumed it was an old street lamp, albeit without the lamp part. That is, until an internet search elicited the fact that this is probably one of the better surviving examples of a stink pipe, used to carry away noxious gases from the sewers. Despite its utterly unromantic function it is highly decorative with a crown at the top and a number of gilded bands. A plate at the bottom indicates that it was built by "J. Stone & Co, Engineers, Deptford, London SE".
