What kind of mast is

alt text

Is that a bent_mast, or an angled_mast. For me the examples under those names look nothing like it.

I would call this straight. Not sure why mast has been chosen rather than pole or post for regular streetlamps, where standard EN-GB calls them lampposts.

In this case the lamp & it's housing makes up nearly all (probably all) of the non-straight part of the lamp post. These designs seem to be increasingly common, replacing ones with a small bend near the top.

Yea, it's not clear if it's straight or angled from the wiki.

Probably choosing a different image for the wiki page would help! I meant to take a photo of the one outside the house for comparative purposes.
