Sewer Gas Lamp, Brantwood Avenue, Monkseaton
Sewer Gas Lamp, Brantwood Avenue, Monkseaton
This is one of ten surviving Sewer Gas Lamps erected in the Whitley Bay and Monkseaton area between 1900 and 1910 and is Grade II Listed. Although these lamps were once common features of our streets they are increasingly rare, and those combined with sewer vents are rarer still. This is an intact example with a complete glass lantern, and not withstanding its humble nature, this is an attractive gas standard with a fluted cast-iron base and ornamental brackets. The lamp is also an example of a technology which once transformed everyday existence. For a selection of detailed free to download walking routes in the area visit LinkExternal link
