Every light sold includes a contribution to solar lighting kits for off-grid homes in Kenya or Malawi.

Solar lighting allows rural families to extend their work day into the evening hours and allows businesses to operate during the evening.

A solar lamp also helps towards improving literacy rates as it enables children to read after dark.

Part of Trainspotters history, these little enamelled beauties hail back to the demolition of the Rover car plant in the early 2000’s.

Otherwise known as Longbridge the enormous factory had its own train station and employed around 30,000 people at its peak.

We salvaged thousands of vintage industrial lights from the complex, literally running ahead of the bulldozers. We only managed to save a couple of hundred of this dinky model and they sold like hotcakes.

We have a small quantity available that have been languishing in the storerooms of one of our customers and have now come back to us like an old friend.

Characterful wear and tear to the enamel.

Please note they take a Bayonet (B22) bulb only.
