Stinkpipe 09 in Silverwood Close
At the end of this quiet sylvan cul-de-sac just a step away from Cambridge's busy retail parks stands this bare-topped stench pole. Most of Cambridge's stinkpipes were supplied by the firm of Ham, Baker but this one came from the foundry of John Spencer Ltd at Wednesbury in the West Midlands whose name appears at the base TL4658 : Base of Stinkpipe 09. It is painted in a darkish municipal green rather than the lighter shade applied to most of those in the city.

For the setting see TL4658 : The green in Silverwood Close.
