Poor thing. Needs a good caring home. I bet that bowl could be glued back together as it looks like it's all there.

yep looks a bit like a BTH Amber but I think it could be a Revo or AEI design

Looks like a REVO for an SO/H lamp

Stop the installation of LED street lights!
Bring SOX, MV and HPS back to our roads and highways!

Looked like it had be donated to the museum sometime ago and is waiting restoration but it might have to wait a long time going by the grass around it. I guess it had been in service until a year or so ago and still had a modern SOX fitted to prove it.

I guess the original wattage would of been 140W SO/H and converted to 90W SOX, do you need to change the ballast to run 90W sox or can they be run off 140W SO/H gear as im curious as to how its done and with 60W so/h to 55w sox and 45w so/h to 35w sox

The original ballast would work fine, although maybe not most efficiently with a 90w SOX. I did not get a chance to check if the original gear was still in the fitting or even if it was remotely housed.

It's a shame to see it left in that state, are you sure it's due to be restored or has it in fact been abandoned?

Say NO to DICTATORSHIP in the form of bulb/tube/ballast bans !!

It looked like it may have been donated by the council at some point, the lamp post was also there as if unloaded from a truck.

I would be running away with that stashed somewhere.

Bring back Fluorescent and SOX Streetlights. Keep magnetic ballasts.

A Cambridge classic. I had been told that a couple of these had been donated to the museum.
