Bedfordshire Streetlighting

Streetlighting in Bedfordshire & Beyond


Welcome to

Bedfordshire Streetlighting

Old meets 'Old' 

An Example of a modern LED 'Heritage' installation replacing an original cast iron column 

Bedford Borough replaced virtually all of its streetlights with LED over a period or around 4 years with the entire scheme being complete in 2019. A few Mercury lanterns managed to survive into 2019 during early 2020 the last few survivors were replaced

Please feel free to peruse the site to see the older lanterns before they met their demise in the late 2010's 

Update: 25/04/2020

There are no further regular updates planned for the site though it is intended that the site will remain in place for the foreseeable future as an archive to Bedford (and other areas) streetlighting heritage. Occasional updates will be made if I spot anything new of interest.
