Thanks to the efforts of the fearless Dave Parsons, one of only two Flagpole Engineers in the country, the flagpole atop Bidston Lighthouse is back in service.
Yesterday, I hoisted the Union Flag to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
No beacons were lit on Bidston Hill this Jubilee. But a few of us did gather on top of the Lighthouse to watch the lighting of beacons across the region. We saw beacons as far afield as Mount Snowdon and Scafell!
