Fire over England
This beacon by All Saints' church at Walesby was erected in July 1988 and lit on 19th July 1988 as part of the beacon chain to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the sighting of the Great Spanish Armada.

It is a replica of those lit in 1588 to alert the local militia to the arrival of the Spanish invasion fleet.
