|"Another person who would like to see the cross restored is Mr W. Ingham of Aberford Road, Barwick. His father, Percy Ingham, was a street lamp maker at Leeds. At the turn of the century, when street lights were a rare sight, he placed a lamp on top of the market cross at Barwick. "My father provided the lamp at his own expense and Mrs Morton's father, Frederick Lumb, supplied the paraffin" said Mr Ingham,. "People used to come from miles around to see the Barwick lamp. It was quite a novelty." But the lamp was short-lived. Complaints from various people including the Parish Council, led to it being removed."|
