In this post I will detail something that as far as I know, no one was ever before realised. It is the apparent occult symbology of the Margate Lighthouse, featured on the £20 note….
Firstly, before we get started, the note itself features William Turner, and a self portrait by him from 1799 pictured to the left of the note.
In the background, it also features The Fighting Temeraire; a tribute to the ship HMS Temeraire which played a role in Nelson’s victory at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.
Now, the reason for Turner being on the £20 was apparently because of his ‘transformative art’;
“Our banknotes celebrate the UK’s extraordinarily rich and diverse heritage and highlight the contributions of its greatest citizens. Turner’s art was transformative,” Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said in February 2020
But we’ll come to Turner later…
More alarmingly, and this has been covered before, is what appears to be a Corona virus symbol that features in the top right hand side of the note. It’s important to make it clear that the first cases of COVID were reported on 31st December 2019. The bank note in question then entered circulation 2 months later on 20th February 2020.
When the note entered the public domain, people quickly pointed out how similar it appeared to a Corona virus symbol, and people in conspiracy circles quickly began talking. However, this claim was then quickly ‘debunked’ by the Bank of England, who said it was simply a representation of the spiral staircase at the Tate Modern. Now, I’ve posted a shot of this spiral staircase above for you to compare with the symbol on the note, and personally I’m not convinced….
But let’s put the Corona stuff to one side and move on now, to the lighthouse…
Now, when this first came out, some people suggested it was a 5G mast. This was very quickly (and correctly this time) debunked, and it was explained how this was simply Margate Lighthouse in Kent, UK. But why would this be on there?
The reason for the Margate lighthouse (top right image) being on the £20 note is reported to be because of how much William Turner (the painter on the note) used to visit there, and also lived for a short time at the end of his life. But Turner died in 1851, so this lighthouse wouldn’t have even existed then.
The lighthouse that would have existed, would be this lighthouse pictured above on the left. It was a lighthouse designed by William Edmunds in 1828 which was eventually destroyed by the North Sea flood in 1953. This is the lighthouse that Turner would have been familiar with.
So who was William Edmunds?
William Edmunds was an architect who designed the Margate Lighthouse, Holy Trinity Church, Margate and Holy Trinity Church, Dover. He came from a very interesting family, to say the least.
- His sister was involved in a long libel case against the Margate solicitor John Boys because she had allegedly posted poems around town which accused John Boys of being ‘in league with the devil’.
- His son was was subject to epileptic fits as a child and because of violent behaviour he was sent to Earlswood Asylum in 1860 where he died in 1866.
- And finally his daughter, Christiana, was an English murderer, popularly known as the “Chocolate Cream Killer“, who carried out a series of poisonings where she would lace chocolate-cream biscuits with strychnine and plant them in sweet shops…. many people became severely ill or died as a result, such as the 4-year-old Sidney Albert Barker.
Needless to say, the Edmunds family had a habit of upsetting a lot of people… perhaps they upset the ‘wrong’ people?
But the weirdness doesn’t end there.
William Edmunds wife Ann reported that: “In 1843 my husband became insane, and was sent to a private lunatic asylum at Southall, where he was confined till August, 1844. He was very strange in his manner a long time before he was sent there. He raved about having millions of money, and attempted to knock down his medical man with a ruler. He had to be confined in a straight jacket before going to the asylum. He had two attendants before he was sent there. In August, 1844, he returned home from considerations of expense. He was better, and remained home until March, 1845, when he had to be sent to the Peckham Lunatic Asylum”
Further information about Edmunds was provided at Christiana’s trial by Dr Steward, the proprietor of the Southall Park asylum. Stewart described how Edmunds entered the asylum in 1843, ‘on the usual medical certificates that he was a dangerous lunatic. The exciting cause of the malady was stated to be “the loss of the sale of a house.”’
So, the official cause of what tipped William Edmunds over the edge is that he failed to sell a house. I’ve heard some stories in my time, but this one really ‘takes the biscuit’ so to put it.
Well, upon further research, I discovered that William Edmunds was not the only person associated with Margate pier and Harbour Company that ended up institutionalised.
A Director of the Company, Robert Pringle, committed suicide in 1842. At his inquest it was said that he had:
‘for some time past, laboured under a deep-rooted delusion, in reference to something going on at the Margate Pier – that he was under confinement for something he had there committed, but was unable to state what; that all the clocks and bells in the town had been stopped till the verdict should be given; that he was sensible it would be against him, and that he should be dragged to the place of execution. He appeared quite rational on every other subject, but as soon as any allusion was made to the Pier, he would commence crying and giving himself in custody”
So what was going on at Margate Pier? It would definitely seem like there was something ‘strange’ going on at either the pier, the lighthouse, or the ‘Harbour Company.’
The pier was built of iron and there were no worries to be had about it’s structural longevity, but in 1976 it was closed over ‘safety concerns’ and then was destroyed by a ‘storm’ just two years later…
The following text is taken from The Isle of Thanet News
“The [remaining] wood from the pier was burnt over several days to try and clear the beach, with many residents gathering up what they could and taking it home. The wreck of the pier remained for several years, surviving numerous, failed attempts to blow it up, The final pieces of the pier head structure were finally dismantled in 1998.”
Really seems like this pier didn’t want to go away….
And just to add a bit more to the mystery of Margate Pier, in 2007 there was a fundraising campaign to raise money to rebuild the pier. This never happened, but in the summer of 2018 a Dreamland Margate Mural-by-the-Sea art installation was erected at the former landward end of the pier. This took the form of a horseshoe-shaped lifebuoy with the words “Save Yourselves” written on it…..
So, it certainly seems like the beachfront of Margate held some ‘secrets’, but let’s now return to the man who’s self portrait appears on the £20 note, William Turner and some of his work that would definitely suggest he was a member of The Cabal, or at the very least, a Freemason.
Here’s some of Turners work:
“Roslin Chapel is decoratively carved throughout including intricately carved pillars, Green Men, and several unexplained motifs. The chapel is thought by many to have connections to the Knights Templar and the Freemasons, although there is no conclusive evidence for these claims” ~ The Tate Museum
“The pencil study of figures on one half of this centrally folded sheet – made with the sheet turned vertically – may be related to studies in the Marford Mill sketchbook” ~ The Tate Museum
“The study of masonry is related to Turner’s rendering of the base of the tower drawn on the recto (Tate D00005; Turner Bequest I E). The title of the drawing inscribed in elaborate copper-plate is similar to the titles that Turner added to his studies of views in the Avon Gorge in his Bristol and Malmesbury sketchbook” ~ The Tate Museum
So, as you can see here, William Turner not only drew and painted Freemasonic buildings, he even labelled some of his work with the prefix ‘study of masonry’ (Masonry being a commonly-used abbreviation of Freemasonry).
Does it not seem strange, that a seemingly-closeted Freemason, would appear on the back of the £20 note, along with a lighthouse, which he never saw, designed by a man who was committed to mental institutions for unexplainable reasons, and that another man, with a similar connections, also became mentally unwell due to the ‘deep-rooted delusion, [that] something [was] going on at the Margate Pier’?
And for those unconvinced by all of this, I will leave you with this….
The new lighthouse that replaced the old one, was built with an octagonal column in 1955.
Why the octagonal column? Well, octagons are regularly used in ceremonies by the Freemasonic Knights of Malta.
This degree is universally associated with the Masonic Knights Templar.
William Cooper (RIP) talks about the Knights of Malta in extreme detail within his book “Behold a Pale Horse” in chapter two, “Secret Societies and the New World Order”
“The Knights of Malta is a world organization with its threads weaving through business, banking, politics, the CIA, other intelligence organizations, P2, religion, education, law, military, think tanks, foundations, the United States Information Agency, the United Nations, and numerous other organizations. They are not the oldest but are one of the oldest branches of the Order of the Quest in existence. The world head of the Knights of Malta is elected for a life term, with the approval of the Pope. The Knights of Malta have their own Constitution and are sworn to work toward the establishment of a New World Order with the Pope at its head. Knights of Malta members are also powerful members of the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) and the Trilateral Commission.” you can read more on the Knights of Malta here
And just to finish off, with one simple fold of the £20 note, you will see this: Queen Elizabeth II looking through the transparent sheet of the £20, directly at you, as you witness the replacement lighthouse in all its illuminated glory:
