The restoration of the Listed ‘Gas Lamp Monument’, paid for by New Forest District Council and undertaken by local specialists JW (UK) Ltd was completed by the end of October – and the result is stunning!

Our photographs below show the monument still surrounded by scaffolding (on 25th October) … and above glowing in late-afternoon sunshine (on 27th October).

The unique lamp is now in full working order and only awaits connection of its gas supply (for lighting) and electricity (for ignition).

Congratulations to all concerned for a job well done!
