Battle Bonfire

November 5th is an annual celebration of the foiling of the "gunpowder plot", when Guido Fawkes attempted to blow up the houses of parliament in Westminster, London in 1605.

East Sussex was well known for the manufacture of gunpowder and the Battel Bonfire Boyes continue the legacy with the annual Battle Bonfire, which is held on the closest Saturday to November 5th each year.

These photos were taken with an Olympus E-PL1 on Saturday, November 5th, 2011 and Saturday, November 3rd, 2012.
