Beacon, Sandgate
Beacon, Sandgate
Classically, beacons were fires lit at well-known locations on hills or high places, used either as lighthouses for navigation at sea, or for signalling over land that enemy troops were approaching, in order to alert defences. As signals, beacons are an ancient form of optical telegraphy, and were part of a relay. Many hills in the UK are called Beacon.
