Hatfield Beacon - Restored
By Derek Martindale
The de Havilland Airfield Beacon, which in the past guided pilots safely to the runway at Hatfield, has now been fully restored and illuminated.
The Beacon which now stands outside the Law School on the de Havilland campus of the University of Hertfordshire, was switched on at 8pm on the 27th September 2013 by the local MP. Grant Shapps.
Prior to the switch on a buffet was held in the Law School, speeches were given by the Vice Chancellor Professor Quintin McKellar CBE and Grant Shapps MP.
