Mid Summer Beacon Lighting at Chapel Carn Brea

Posted on: 26th June 2022

Mid Summer Beacon Lighting at Chapel Carn Brea, on Thursday 23 June, marked my second excursion up that wonderful hill, as Mayor and speaking in Cornish. I’ll tell the story in photos, for those of you who missed out! Event brilliantly organised by Old Cornwall Society, as always.

The Master of Ceremonies, Rev Karsten Wedgewood and myself, gather before the lighting of the Beacon.
