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. The winning photo for the Autumn 2013 photo competition is by Phosco152. GEC Z5640 lanterns catch the late afternoon sun as the leaves on the trees start to turn into autumn colours. This could be the UK, but in fact this is Copenhagen in early September 2013 with the season slightly more advanced than in the UK.
