Good point David

Don't know why the lamp is lit, but I think it adds to the photo. Trouble is, it may then be OFF at night, when it's needed, but I really like this pic.

Good one Mick.

Good one, Mick, I think it was taken from The King of Prussia Yard to show the contrasting light.

Great photo unique angle. The light is probably on a timer and someone got AM and PM crossed

Was this taken from near the Plague mound?

Maybe, Derek, but I have walked through the churchyard in the afternoon and one of the lamps has been lit.

Derek and Irene. I am a retired spark. This light column will almost certainly have whats commonly known as a sensor photocell. Alight sencor generates an output signal indicating the intensity of light by measuring the radiant energy that exists in a very narrow range of frequencies basically called LIGHT, which ranges in frequency from infa-red to visible up to ultraviolet light spectrum. Most Street lighting all over the UK have them. To make it simple to most, dawn to dusk switch.
