Danby Beacon was lit on Tuesday the 18th of June to commemorate the victory of the Allied forces at the Battle of Waterloo. The weather conditions were perfect - warm still evening with clear skies and no rain.
Harry Graham, who instigated the modern Beacon project, lit Danby Beacon at 10 pm. Harry and his wife June celebrated with a glass of champagne and the gathering enjoyed drinks and sandwiches from the back of the Duke of Wellington Land Rover.
Thanks to Tony O’Donnell, a well known violin maestro, who had entertained superbly earlier at the Inn and to John Thompson and his banjolele.
