Not more than 200 yards apart, judging by the quick google I just did ;)

I believe its 50m apart. In urban areas, where there are street lights, the limit is 30mph unless otherwise posted.

I know on our street (residential 30 limit) they are more than 100 yards apart, but it's quite random. The next street over they are more like 50 yards. It gets quite dark :)

The combination of mblnFERCr and Fellrunning's posts is that legally if they are spaced less than 200 yards apart, the speed limit is 30mph (so in motorway areas where there are lights, like around complicated junctions, you'll see 'national speed limit applies' signs attached to the posts). But you might find they are much closer together than that, especially on roads with a lot of bends.

it depends.

Basically, use the same set of lamp posts for you training and don't worry about it.
