Phase 1 Standard Vanguard introduced July 1947


The Standard Vanguard was produced

by the Standard Motor Company

in Coventry from 1947 to 1963


The Standard Vanguard has very little (in fact nothing)

to do with Theosophy but we have found that

Theosophists and new enquirers do like pictures

of classic cars and we get a lot of positive feedback.

Tekels Park, Camberley, Surrey, England GU15 – 2LF

Article describing Tekels Park and its much

cherished wildlife by Theosophist and long

term Tekels Park Resident Madeleine Leslie Smith



Tekels Park

Camberley, Surrey, England GU15 2LF


Concerns about the fate of the wildlife as

Tekels Park is to be Sold to a Developer


Concerns are raised about the fate of the 

wildlife as The Spiritual Retreat, 

Tekels Park in Camberley, Surrey, 

England is to be sold to a developer.


Tekels Park is a 50 acre woodland park,

 purchased for the Adyar Theosophical 

Society in England in 1929.


Diploma in Finance ?


It doesn’t require a Diploma in Finance

and even someone with a Diploma in

Astral Travel will know that this is a

bad time economically to sell Tekels Park


In addition to concern about the park, 

many are worried about the future 

of the Tekels Park Deer as they 

are not a protected species.


Confusion as the Theoversity moves out of 

Tekels Park to Southampton, Glastonbury & 

Chorley in Lancashire while the leadership claim

that the Theosophical Society will carry on using 

Tekels Park despite its sale to a developer


Anyone planning a “Spiritual” stay at the

Tekels Park Guest House should be aware of the sale.
