As reported in the article “It’s back! Historic lamppost near York Minster rises again” on YorkMix, a piece of history has been resurrected near York Minster. Following an unfortunate incident where the lamppost was knocked flat by a wagon in March, it has undergone a meticulous and costly repair job, restoring it to its former glory.

This cast iron ornate street light, with its unique charm, once again graces the streets. Council officials expressed their commitment to pursuing the insurance company of the HGV driver responsible for the collision, aiming to recover the repair expenses.

In a momentous event, the recently restored lamppost was lifted back into its rightful place between High Petergate and Minster Gates. While its base awaits filling, the lamppost’s warm glow will return to light up York’s nights in just a night or two.
