Don't think this one has been mentioned before, but this fine example is standing at Brooklands Museum.

There's a whole series of these lights, complete with original lanterns, in a quarry just off the A283 near Shoreham. Pan around in GSV and you'll see more in the grounds of the building.

Here's a row of very pristine looking old lights in a private car park at County Hall in Hertford (turn round to see another).

The grounds of the Hall also contain a number of other very well preserved lights that are original to the building and presumably being looked after as part of the heritage of the site.

It looks like the first set might not be there anymore, as the 2017 photograph from the road appears to show a metal column standing where the concrete column used to be:

Oh, that's a shame! I didn't realise the coverage jumped back to 2014 around the car park.
