The following is an extract from the Bradley Parish Council minutes, early 20th century:

“ Lamplighter Duties:
All lamps to be lighted every night.
No moon period allowed.
Lamps to be lighted weekdays and Sundays from dusk to 10pm.
Saturdays until 11pm.
Lamps to be cleaned once a month.
New mantles can be had from the Clerk. “

The lamps were supplied with gas from Kildwick.
