revo moseley

For cast-iron columns with a base compartment, this style of lantern quickly became the staple design for Group-B roads around the country. Manufacturers made many variants of this same style of column: base compartment with embellishments, sloping floral patterned top, plain shaft and decorative ladder bar with floral motif.

This REVO Moseley is a classic example of this style of column. REVO make several varients of different columns lenghts and gear box compartments; this one is probably the heighest with the largest gear box.

This column originally stood somewhere in Surrey.

A REVO swan-neck and lantern is planned for this column, and it will be painted in Merton's traditional colours of black and white.

The column now stands in the back garden where it forms part of the garden lighting. It has been painted in Merton's traditional colour scheme of black and white. It is fitted with a Lucy Medium Swan Neck Bracket and ESLA Bi-Multi Group "A" Two-Way 165° 7½°. This was the typical installation used in Merton's side streets.
