35. Church St, Church Gresley. Located on the access road to the Church Gresley Industrial Estate are three Stanton columns with top-entry GEC Clearmain Z8403 (Thanks Simon for the identification!) mercury lanterns installed. It is difficult to know whether they work or not, although it is unlikely that they do. All three installations are unusual, as the lantern is actually the wrong way round, due to it not being designed for the Group B column - it is actually a 250/400W Group 'A' lantern and should be used on a column of the same group. If the lanterns were orientated the correct way round, there would be difficulty in opening the bowls, as the clips on all three lanterns would be up against the brackets.
The column located at the entrance to the Industrial Estate is pictured below:
