2005 was my 6th Lewes Bonfire night since I moved to sunny Sussex to go to University in Brighton. 2005 was also the 400th year anniversary of Guy Fawkes and the minority Catholic plot to blow up the Houses of parliment, assasinate King James and overtrow the ruling protestant government. This year, Lewes bonfire and fireworks were no less spectacular than any other year. If anything that little extra effort seemed to have been made with the costumes, the parade and the fireworks. Fortunately it didn't rain, the fires sites were dry and the trains to and from Brighton, although full and packed like sardines ran well and late into the night (we got back at 1.33 into Brighton when the last train from Lewes was meant to be 12!)
Below are my photos of Lewes Bonfire 2005 parade and celebrations. This year, I attended the Lewes Borough firework display. I hadn't been to this particular society's fireworks before - its nice to try something different ey! You can also see my 2004 Lewes bonfire photos, where I attended the Waterloo society firework display.
Feel free to do as you please with my photos, but if you have a website, please link back to me as way of payment (and if you're feeling nice!) That way, this site will rank well in search engines and more people can enjoy these photos ;-)
