St. James's Church and trolley post
St. James's Church and trolley post
St. James's Church, Bolton, on Bolton Road, Bradford.

The lamppost used to be a post supporting the wires for trolley buses, which is why it leans outward from the road. The tension in the wires would have pulled it upright. These posts are very strong and set 6' into the ground. Because of this most have not been moved but are used for lighting or carrying telephone wires or just standing there.

The last trolley bus service in Britain ran in Bradford in 1972.
