This BLEECO E66 column, designed for Group B lighting, supported a small swan neck
bracket and lantern up to 100W. With its thin fluted shaft, well-defined ladder bar, and small base compartment,
it was the epitome of elegance.
Many still stand in Sussex where BLEECO maintained a stronghold. Unfortunately hardly any still survive
with original BLEECO swan-neck brackets and/or lanterns.
With its base compartment, there was no need for a high-level termination, so most should survive well into
these health-and-safety conscious days.
This column originally stood somewhere in Surrey.
A BLEECO swan-neck and lantern is planned for this column.
A BLEECO Brighton Bracket
and BLEECO Worthing (100W) / BLEECO Open Type Conical Lantern 677
have now been installed on the column.
The lantern was lit as the first snow of 2009 started to fall.
The column was moved to the back garden in early 2010 where it was fully restored and repainted. It now lights the approach to the video arcade.
In this shot, my short restoration column can be seen, on which a REVO swan neck and lantern have been restored and will now be
Relamping and trimming back to the trees in April 2020. The REVO Moseley with
a ESLA Bi-Multi reflector can be seen in the background.
