UKASTLE was set up in May 2007 with the aim of providing a focal point for all things related to street lighting. Since then we have engaged in many fantastic discussions and shared forgotten or little known information, and as members we have learnt a lot from each others' contributions.
Welcome to UKASTLE - the UK Association of Street Lighting Enthusiasts.
Whether you're a lighting devotee, a collector of lanterns, a photographer or just someone who is curious to find out more, please register with us and enjoy being a part of this association.
For every season of the year, we feature a showcase image which defines the epitome of street lighting. Here we showcase the finest seasonal-themed streetlighting images that we have to offer. Members can submit what they believe to be the best images they have for a certain period of time, then later the UKASTLE community will vote on these images and the winning image is then displayed here for all to see.
The winning photo for the late Winter seasonal competition is by trencheel303 and shows a variety of SOX lanterns, some very old on concretes, near St Andrews Drive in the affluent south side of Glasgow. The nearest light is a Tamlite fixture.
