Lamp Post, Birnbeck Pier, Weston-Super-Mare, Somerset 31 August 2016
An old gas lamp on the approach road to the 1867 Birnbeck Pier entrance (the toll building is visible behind the fence). It has the foundry mark of the Isca Foundry & Engineering Co, of Pillgwenlly (Pill), Newport, just "across the water". The iron components for the pier were also supplied by the Isca Foundry.

The Isca Foundry and Engineering Co were operating from at least 1859 until at least the early 1950s.
