Active Beacons: Installation on the Yorkshire Coastal Path

A glance behind the scenes as we continue to install our sculptural beacons on the Yorkshire coastal path.

These active beacons are an interactive wayfinding system placed along the Yorkshire coast path; designed to connect people with their surroundings, encourage outdoor adventure, whilst helping you contribute to important environmental research.

Way markers have helped us navigate landscapes for thousands of years. These sculptural forms are waymakers, photoposts and fixed data points. Active Beacons are a new wayfinding system designed to help you navigate your way through countryside, cities and coastal paths, all the while contributing to important social and environmental research and history.
