There are loads of ancient mercury streetlights here, a large variety of manufacturers.

Is this the right place here?

I can only see Urbis lanterns?

They are indeed getting rid of them, most have now been replaced either wih WRTL Libra 55w PL-L lanterns, or WRTL Arc fittings running 140w Cosmo White lamps. I have some of the cranleigh mercury lanterns in my collection now as a result...

The lighting in Surrey now looks the same wherever you are, they're apparently over a year ahead of where they thought they'd be on the replacemrnt scheme.
It's not lost, I just can't find it!
