Maplin Beacon disappears

Board Minute:

“The board informed that the Maplin Beacon is gone; Ordered that Mr. Baker be directed to lay a buoy there forthwith, with a flag on it to distinguish it from other buoys in those parts, till a beacon can be replaced, and to send up notice when it has been laid so that notice of the same may be advertised in the public prints.”
