Earlier in 2002 Mr Small and the parishioners of Thornfalcon had erected a beacon on the top of Thorn Hill, Thornfalcon to commemorate the Queen's Golden Jubilee in May 2002. The beacon is still in place, although it currently rather rusty and has several holes in the bottom of it and so it wouldn't contain a fire very well at the moment. There is a plaque on the beacon, naming it as David's Beacon.
Although not very high (77 metres), Thorn Hill is visible for miles around, as the land to the north is generally flat and low lying and the hill is topped with a distinctive plantation of trees.
