Stinkpipe 66 in Broad Street
Stinkpipe 66 in Broad Street
At the dead end of Broad Street near the modern entrance to the Flower Street Estate stands this well-preserved if slightly shabby stench pole, complete with its decorative base and corona cap. I couldn't find a maker's name but it looks like a typical example of the work of Ham, Baker - ostensibly Engineers of Westminster though their works were at Tipton in the Black Country - who supplied many such products to grace the streets of Cambridge and other cities.
