Where to find Jubilee Beacons in Yorkshire: Complete list

This article was first published in 2012.

A TRAIL of fire will light up the night sky on Monday, June 4 as hundreds of beacons are lit across the region to mark the Diamond Jubilee.

In total, a network of more than 4,000 beacons will be lit throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, along with the Commonwealth and UK overseas territories.

The lighting will begin at 10pm that night, starting with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) beacons.

A minute later, the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI) beacons will be lit, along with farms, stately homes, and those beacons organised by English Heritage and the National Trust.

Beacons co-ordinated by the Marine Society and Sea Cadets, Air Training Corps, Army Cadets and Combined Cadet Forces, along with the Scout Association, Girl Guiding UK and Boys Brigade, will be lit at 10.10pm and, at 10.12pm, beacons will be lit along Hadrians Wall.

Councils and community groups will light theirs at 10.15pm and, at 10.20pm, beacons linked with churches of all denominations will be lit.

Those on the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man will be lit at 10.21pm and bodies including the Northern Lighthouse Board are due to light theirs at 10.24pm.

Charities, private households and organisations such as hospitals, clubs, pubs, Lions, Round Table, Rotary Clubs, Masonic Lodges and the Caravan Club are scheduled to light their beacons at 10.26pm and, three minutes later, beacons will be lit on top of Ben Nevis, Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Slieve Donard in Northern Ireland.

The grand finale will be at 10.30pm, when the Queen will light the National Beacon at a central location in London.
