Good spot Chris, it is interesting that the stench pipe has been extended, presumably just in case of any methane build-up getting ignited by the gas-lamp.

Also because it is tall (I guess), it has the extended width base as well.

Yes, it's twice the normal height; I think your explanation is probably correct.

Street furniture? yes, I think so. An unusually shaped street name plate. New Ferry, near the river.

An old gas lamp, now converted to electric, in Rock Park. The post is by REVO of Tipton & the lantern is a Sugg. (Thanks, Pinzgauer).
Could do with a re-paint!

A removable barrier post in Rock Park. Is this old, or a modern reproduction?

Yes Chris, it certainly looks like a genuine item that has been recycled, just something with the depth of the edges of the "mouldings" make it look pukka.

Have you got a picture from the side to see if the locking loop has been welded on?

A couple more pics. of guide posts. The octagonal posts have cast into them the following:
ERECTED BY THE WIRRAL FOOTPATHS ETC. SOCIETY. BY PERMISSION OF THE COUNCIL. (The ETC. stands for "& open spaces"). This society was founded in 1888 & is still active.
The wording on the finger post varies, sometimes including the name of the society, sometimes "keep to the path", sometimes "please keep to the path". I suppose they varied by date.

A nice old gas lamp column converted to SOX (low pressure sodium). Well spotted kimpri1. Looks like it could do with a bit of TLC
