St Catharine's Entrance
The replacement copper Lanterns are, manufactured by AJ Bernasconi, to the exacting standards required by English Heritage, to light St Catharine's College Court Yard. The Planning Department, of Cambridge City Council, had to both approve the Lantern and Columns to be used in this Grade 1 listed environment.

An old historic Victorian Lantern was found in Queen's College, maintenance workshop, and was loaned to us to take measurements. The Lantern required improvements to meet modern electrical Regulations & IP ratings this included integrally mounted 70 Lux PEC & 70 w son /E lamp with control gear fitted behind the hinged reflector plate. A Kamax refractor was used for light control.

The post top mounted Cradle was used by the Victorian gas lighters to mount the Lanterns and to gain easy access for igniting the mantles (a single ladder arm was used). These were reproduced from old College photographs.

Downing Street cast iron Columns were chosen. These are important copies of columns used in some of Britain's most historical places. An electrical access door was fitted to the column base to meet modern electrical Regs.

Cambridge City 1880
Cambridge Market in Victorian times, note the lantern on the right & the centre with its lantern missing from their cradles on the post top. Vandals destroyed it then, not much has changed.
