The Mystery of the Templer Obelisk


Hidden beneath a shroud of ivy and brambles in St Edmund’s graveyard for many years, an obelisk erected in memory of members of the Templer and Needham families has recently been brought to light.  It has proved to be a rather mysterious object whose history still needs to be explained.  

What is particularly intriguing is the wealth of Freemasonry symbols and letters inscribed on the obelisk.  In addition to the well-known hammer, square and compasses, the letters HTWS STKS appear intertwined in the carvings. These apparently stand for Hiram Tyrian Widow’s Son Sent To King Solomon.  If anyone can explain the significance of this- please let CHS know.   Read more about this fascinating object by following this link…
