In the run up to Tyntesfield WWII weekend we thought we would refurbish our old Naval signalling lamps and make tripod for them to stand in. With the aid of Mr Jones and John Weedon we refurbished the lights and Dave Perry welded up a boss onto which we fitted some legs to make a tripod.

Although the legs are a little heavy we don't have to worry about the light toppling over.  The new tripod looks great but I am sure the lights will look even better panning through the night sky and lighting Tyntesfield this June.
