Clacton-on-Sea: Listed street lights c 1912, Marine Parade West
This is a group of sixteen listed street lights on Clacton Cliff and south-east of Marine Parade West. There are four visible in the photograph. The others are behind the photographer or out of sight over the horizon.

The group is Grade II Listed and the Historic England website describes them thus:-

"16 street lights, installed c.1912. Cast iron. Similar to row of lights Marine Parade East q.v. 7/9 . Many of the lights with labels attached to bases reading "Johnson and Phillips, Charlton", 2 with labels "London Electric Firm, Croydon". All lights of identical moulding to those further along Marine Parade East."

A photograph of four of the other batch of five is here TM1815 : Clacton-on-Sea: Listed street lights c 1912, Marine Parade East The other five have all lost their brackets, but the Historic England description of the other batch is far more comprehensive than the listing for this batch, and worth reading if one is interested.
