James, thank you, I stand corrected and I shall look on with interest!

Well, Swinbrook managed a beacon for the Diamond Jubilee, so why not the Platinum as well? Photos online.

There is, Russell. They’ve just not told you is all.

Christine, I suspect that somewhere along the line that there has been an error. I am very familiar with the St Mary's tower roof and as far as I am aware there is no beacon or any infrastructure to support one- unless the PCC know differently!

The beacons across Oxfordshire are listed here: https://www.oxfordshire-lieutenancy.org/the-queens-platinum-jubilee-2022

Nearest to us are Blenheim; Daylesford (Kingham); Tower of St Mary's Church, Swinbrook, Burford; Great Rollright Village Hall, Great Rollright, and Brize Norton. Also Stow (but not in Oxfordshire). Yet to find a decent interactive map! 

Details about the beacons (from the Rollright parish council website) here: https://static1.squarespace.com/static/60bb599c70faee6f7ef0835c/t/6277bc4ad91c307a62fbbe06/1652014174592/Guide_To_Taking_Part_Online.pdf

I haven't seen any local news about the beacons.

Oxford events are shown here.

Details of the event and those taking part can be viewed by going to the Guide To Taking Part found at www.queensjubileebeacons.com
