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. This lamp will be rebuilt from scratch. The other lanterns will be 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 need restoration. All the standards and lanterns will then be repainted in their original black and their coronets gilded.
