Farncombe Road / Church Walk Lamp Post
Farncombe Road / Church Walk Lamp Post
When electricity came to Worthing in 1901, the borough council installed 110 elaborate cast-iron lamp-posts with hexagonal glass and iron lamps suspended from an arm 20 feet (6.1 m) above the ground. The only remaining example saved by Worthing Civic Society founder Patricia Baring, outside whose home it stood is on a traffic island at the Farncombe Road Church Walk junction.
The lamp-post is a Grade II listed building.
