Member's Comments on Beacon Hill...

  • Chris Pearson says...
  • Penrith Beacon, a sandstone monument built in 1719, on a spot where beacons have been lit in times of war and emergency since the time of Henry VIII. The beacon forewarned of numerous Scottish raids over the centuries.In 1980 inter-city electric locomotive 86255 was named ‘Penrith Beacon’, recognising the watch kept over a town with a long railway history. Visitors to the Beacon used to sign a book in the porch of Carroline Cottage further along Beacon Edge road from the start of the current permissive path.
