Golden Jubilee Beacon, Crich by Rod Johnson

Golden Jubilee Beacon, Crich by 


The Golden Jubilee Beacon, close to the Memorial Tower on Crich Hill at Crich in Derbyshire, England. The present beacon was built to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, in 2002.

An information board at the site indicates that a previous beacon on the hill may have been part of the beacon chain used in 1588 to warn of the approaching Spanish Armada.

Beacons were also lit in 1988 to celebrate the 400th Anniversary of the defeat of the Armada, again on 1st January 2000 to mark the start of the new millennium, and then again on 4th August 2000 to celebrate Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother’s hundredth birthday.
