The light has failed again (!), the bulb having been replaced recently. It is a serious safety issue as the (heavily-worn), steep, stone steps are in complete darkness without this lamp working. The light needs more serious attention. For the bulb to fail so soon - partic. if an LED - suggests the light fitting itself may need replacement. A new control box was fitted when the bulb was last replaced so there should be no reason for thelamp to fail so soon. Please give it the attention it deserves..

  • This light is still not working. It seemed to be working until the new junction box was fitted but reading back through previous report it seems the box was an attempt to stop the lamp failing. It would be great to have it back working. Thank you.
