The idea of a perpetual light has long been seen as a symbol of peace, healing and a link with beneficial spiritual forces. Wellesley Tudor Pole was inspired “from a High Source” to launch the Lamplighter Movement in 1964.
WTP wrote “the symbol of Light is to be used to act as a unifying agent for common purpose”. The Lamplighter is an outer symbol of inner intent.
As the Lamplighter movement gained popularity, supporters lit amber coloured lamps in upper rooms to shine out constantly with dedication to serve world peace and wish for understanding between all nations and peoples.
The Lamplighter is made locally from beautifully turned ash wood. The amber bulb is a cover that unscrews to reveal the halogen bulb that lasts for thousands of hours.
