MODERN LOCATIONS OF SURVIVING WEBB SEWER LAMPS
And no -
Despite Webb lamps having been apparently installed in over 100 local authorities there are very few to be seen today. Most, having lost their sewer ventilation and sterilisation function were replaced by electric lamp standards. English Heritage have protected by 'listing' 20 in Sheffield, 10 in Whitley bay, 5 in Seaton Delaval/Sluice, 1 in Rippon and the Carting Lane lamp. Surviving single lamps may also be seen in Alton, Durham, Winchester, and Morpeth -
I would welcome information on any other surviving Webb lamps; working, converted or derelict, in this country or abroad.
