Stinkpipe (66a*) in Norfolk Terrace
Stinkpipe (66a*) in Norfolk Terrace
Outside no 63, at the northern end of the western arm of this street, this stench pole still has its corona cap but has lost the usual ornate base (if it ever had one).

*It is not recorded on the 2013 map but I have given it a conjectural number based on its nearest neighbour TL4658 : Stinkpipe 66 in Broad Street which is just the other side of the modern housing in the Flower Street Estate, seen behind the brick wall.
