The Lamp was placed by the Weir to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1897. It was made by F.T.Ruston & Sons Limited of St.Ives. Over the years the lamp deteriorated so in 1999/2000 Warboys Parish Council commissioned Anthony J. Bernasconi of Mill Green to restore it as part of the Warboys Millennium Project. Below you can see pictures of the original maker at the bottom of the post and refurbisher details and north direction on the mounting plate on which the lamp stands. The lamp is Grade II listed by Historic England as list entry number 1412978. To see some of the renovation being undertaken click HERE
