Remember, remember …

the fifth of November,
gunpowder, treason and plot; 
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot.

The Guy Fawkes Inn on High Petergate is worth either a real or a virtual visit, not only as the place where the plotter was born in 1570, but also for the outstanding decor and atmosphere. There will be bonfires and fireworks all over the UK this evening, but many will have only the vaguest idea of their significance


  1. Hope you'll get some shots of the festivities.

  2. I saw the wonderful photos at "". What a welcoming place. I'd like to stay there for some days.

  3. Very interesting. I wasn't familiar with the gunpowder plot --- thanks for the links. The inn looks charming!
