Wellhead Close

Seven Ceremonial Lamp Posts

Two ceremonial lamp posts are installed in front of the home of Edinburgh's Lord Provost during his Term of Office.  When he demits office, one is removed but the other remains in position for the rest of his life.

The photo above looks to the NW towards the Lord Provost's house.

There are now  (at February 2011) seven ceremonial lamp posts outside the houses of the Lord Provost and former Lord Provosts:

-  two at 10 Wellhead Close, South Queensferry, the home of the current Lord Provost,  George Grubb,

-  one  each outside the homes of five former Lord Provosts.
