The Lamppost was a major landmark in the country of Narnia, located in the north-western area populated by Dryads and Fauns, which was named Lantern Waste after it. Resembling a London streetlamp it stood in the middle of the forest and shone day and night. It was at the lamppost that Lucy Pevensie first met Mr. Tumnus. He tells her that the lamp-post marks the beginning of Narnia.
The Lamppost originated in the first few days of Narnia's creation, from a bar of iron which Queen Jadis had torn from a London lamppost and thrown at Aslan. Aslan at the time was creating the living things of Narnia by his song, which made the ground of Narnia magically fertile and gave birth to the animals and plants of the world. The iron bar fell to the ground and, under the influence of Aslan's song, gave birth to a new, little lamppost.
You will need to bring your own pen to sign this cache. You will not need to pick the cache up off the ground -- only the "lid". Adhering to this request will ensure the original container lasts for all future cachers to enjoy.
This cache was originally intended to be part of the the LPC contest, but procrastination led to a late hide. Fortunately, it also fits in well with the new theme of "literature" as the Narnia books are a fantastic young adult fantasy series with many allegories to the Christian faith (although you don't have to be Christian to truly appreciate these books!).
