The Old Lord Provost’s lamp post in front of the Orchar Care Home, put there for Lord Provost Orchar in the days when all Lord Provosts got fancy lamps in front of their house, has now been removed.

This is part of the refurbishment of the lamp posts on Beach Crescent being undertaken by the Broughty Ferry Development Trust, thanks to a grant from Dundee Historic Environment Trust.

This particular lamp post style is known as a ‘barley sugar’ lamp post.
