The west face of the lamppost are on Carrington Road SJ9091 : Carrington Road shows a photograph of a grate.

Above it are the words:

MY FRIEND WORKED AT NEEDHAMS,
WORKED ON THE RECEPTION. IT WAS
A GREAT COMMUNITY, A VERY FAMILY
BASED FIRM, THE CHRISTMAS PARTIES
AND OUTINGS WERE
ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT.

and below it:

IN THE FOUNDRY ITSELF, THEY DID 3
SHIFTS SO THE BUILDING WAS BEING
CONSTANTLY USED. THEY SENT THEIR
STUFF ALL OVER, I THINK IT WAS TO
AUSTRALIA AND AMERICA. NEEDHAMS
WAS WELL KNOWN FOR IRONWORK.

In 2014 as part of the Stockport Arts Trail, an independent group of young people, working towards an Arts Award Qualification at Stockport Central Library, created the images for one face of the artworks, located on lampposts in and around Edgeley. Historic photographs from the libraries archives are on the other face, giving people an idea of how the area looked in times gone by.

A new set of lamppost artworks were set up in 2015 as part of a second Arts Trail LinkExternal link celebrating the secret history of silk in Heaton Norris.

Other decorated lamppost have appeared since in other parts of Stockport but documentation is hard to locate.
