I should state I am a republican but I do not begrudge at all the last few days of celebrations.
So at 22:30 last night a Beacon was lit at the top Barr Beacon to celebrate this occasion. Unfortunately the numbers were limited to just 200 (no real idea why, health and safety according to THIS). This was a great shame as I am sure if it was open the publicity it would have got would have been much greater for the area.
Walsall Wildlife were there to record this event and the pictures can be found HERE.
This is their excellent blog on the event.
