St Paul's Gas Lamps
Restoration of the gas lamps
There are ten gas lamps around the churchyard of St Paul's, one of which exploded recently with little salvageable. The lamp was rebuilt from scratch. The other lanterns were restored, their ironwork cleaned, new glazing installed where necessary, new coronet finials made and their access doors eased. Two of the stone plinths on which these gas lamps stand also needed restoration. All the standards and lanterns were then repainted in their original black and their coronets gilded.
