Piping What?

LuneTube film about unidentified street furniture in Bare Morecambe

 For years, residents of the Morecambe suburb of Bare have been puzzled by strange objects in their midst.
 

A BARE MYSTERY

These items of street furniture have been the subject of conjecture and debate; with many coming up with their own theories as to what they are. Could they be old street lamps? The remains of a tram system? Or did they once carry flags?

Look closer...

There is a number of the cast-iron columns on the streets of Bare and in other districts of the town.  If you look at them closely, you start to notice variations in design. Some carry a maker's name and look quite old - others appear to be more recent.  But what are they?
 
At LuneTube we do love a good mystery, so we thought we'd better investigate.  We just hope we don't kick up a stink...
