Bradford beacon

The 76-metre Lister Mills chimney in Bradford was last week turned into a beacon to symbolise the ongoing regeneration of the surrounding area. The light beams from the chimney reach 10km into the sky and will shine from dusk until midnight each evening while developers Urban Splash transform the mills, which have been vacant since 1992, into a mixed-use development including homes, offices and community space.
