Celebrating the Queens 90th Birthday at Flamborough Head!

The [new] beacon is lit!

Most people will be aware that today is our Monarchs 90th birthday. Celebrating this milestone involved the lighting of c900 beacons across the land, including Flamborough Head. We went expecting the original beacon to be utilised -

but alas, due to Health & Safety, this was not possible and a "modern" beacon was constructed in the grounds of Trinity House Flamborough Lighthouse! -

While waiting for the beacon to be lit at 2025hrs, I took the opportunity of capturing the evening sky over Flamborough -

Although the lighting of the beacon at Flamborough was not designated a public event, the kind Trinity House staff invited the small group of people into the grounds to hear the birthday proclamation, before the lighting of the beacon -
