Beacon at Beeston Castle to Celebrate the Queen's 90th Birthday

Beeston Castle

To celebrate the Queen's 90th Birthday, English Heritage were lighting a beacon at Beeston Castle, this being part of a line of beacons that were to be lit throughout the UK and overseas as part of Her Majesty's birthday celebrations.

Whilst the event was not open to the public, there were many vantage points and we wondered whether any Tattenhallers were able to witness this memorable spectacle.

The beacon was scheduled to be lit at approximately 9pm.
