92. The Littleover Lodge Hotel. Located in the car park are several 10m tubular steel columns. This in itself is not particularly remarkable - what is unusual is that Simplex Diadem Majors (and one Philips MI 55 replacement which isn't pictured in detail here) are used. These lanterns are more suited to being mounted to columns which are half the height of these ones so the car park would almost certainly not be lit to an acceptable level. This must have been realised at some point as higher-wattage floodlights are now installed just below the column/bracket joint of some columns and all of the actual lanterns are unlit. I don't know when they last worked, but they still look to be in good condition.
