Boston Beacon

Competition finalist


Your first glimpse of Boston across the fens and wolds will be the towering beams of light signalling the Boston Beacon; a light installation incorporating four converging searchlight beams located adjacent to the four corners of St. Botolph’s Church tower.

Each powerful searchlight will be programmed and choreographed to create a
subtly changing installation with the converging beams rising ever higher to create
the effect of an 8 km high steeple of light.

At a closer proximity to the installation four individual soundscapes, linked to each
searchlight, will be produced to enhance the spatial experience of the visitor as they
pass through and around the church precinct.
