Tonight, about 50 beacons will be lit along the route of the proposed HS2 high speed rail line by individuals and groups opposed to HS2.
They are there to warn people about the start of the public consultation on high speed rail, due to be announced today, in an way similar to the beacons used when the Spanish Armada was headed for Britain.
Details of the beacons can be found here.
Some beacons will be lit at sunset – about 5.39pm, and others at 5.45pm or 6pm.
Not all are open to the public, so please check with your local action group.
Stop HS2 supports the communities who are lighting these beacons and wishes them a dry, bright and safe night.
Penny will be attending Quainton’s beacon and Lizzy Thorpe Mandeville.
