A collection of Utility Covers etc

I thought I would start off today with a mass posting – in future I will try to add only one drain cover at a time.


A gas cover – not sure what the NJ G and B stand for – can’t read the other letter, it a may be L


A Hepworth cover not sure what it covers up!


Post office phone cover – now they may read Open Reach?


Stockport drain cover grid


Gas tap cover


Old drain cover – New Street Henley on Thames


Ubiquitous Water meter and mains tap covers


Electricity manhole cover


Possibly Victorian soak away cover


PAM cable covers Cable and Wireless company


Ensor sewage drain cover


Not sure what this old looking cover is protecting!


Thames Water hydrant cover (possibly)  all seem to be painted over in yellow.


Finally a Steelway Brickhouse Dudley 8048 cover

Broads PO Silver Knight


This was in a pavement, and looks as if it might be a Post Office telephone cover.  Two triangular metal pieces.

A water drain grating

From the manufacturer’s site

Saint Gobain PAM specialises in the manufacture of cast iron above and below ground drainage systems for commercial and public buildings all backed by BSI Kitemark approval and BS EN 9001:2008 management systems and BS EN 14001:2004. Saint-Gobain PAM’s Telford site has a long and proud heritage of manufacturing cast iron pipes and fittings and rainwater and gutter systems for virtually 100 years and its highly respected brands Ensign, Timesaver and Classical lead the cast iron markets today.
