A difficult one ...
The light-well to my cellar is currently capped with a steel plate and
The level of the path (which incorporates this capping) is too high for
the damp course so I'm having it dug up and having clay pavers laid at a
It seems to me a wasted opportunity not to install some sort of
'pavement light' into the new path to provide natural light for the
cellar below (I'll add more air bricks for ventilation).
The pavement light needs to be flush with the block paving and able to
bear the weight of someone walking obliquely over it because it's very
close to an outward opening door (having an inward opening door is not
part of the solution space!)
