The lighting of the beacon, which will be given a permanent home at Taylor Wimpey’s Beacon Green development, took place on Thursday 2nd June as part of the nationwide celebration to mark the Queen’s 70 year reign. 

In collaboration with Bacton Parish Council, the new development was named in honour of the beacon. For the duration of the Jubilee celebrations, the beacon was situated on a temporary earth mound and will be installed in the open green space at Beacon Green once the development is completed. 

Philip Jeffries, the Parish Councillor responsible for the Jubilee event, said: “On behalf of Bacton Parish Council I would like to thank Taylor Wimpey for their help in making sure our Beacon was in place for the Jubilee. I can report it burst into the night sky and glowed very well throughout the evening.” 

Caroline Carter, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey East Anglia, said: “The lighting of the beacon was an incredible way for the community to come together and celebrate such a historic milestone as The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. We hope everyone had a fantastic evening of celebrations and created memories to last a lifetime.”

Beacon Green will provide 81 high-quality homes, in a range of two, three, four and five bedrooms. To register your interest, please visit the website here
