Bonfire Night on Clapham Common

Above slide show courtesy of Jack Wallington from Love Clapham blog. Jack is calling for more contributions to his fireworks gallery, so if you have any, he’d be delighted to have them. My photographic skills unfortunately don’t survive into the dark.

After last year’s shock and awe display word must have spread through London town, as Clapham Old Town was hopping with firework frenzy last night. I have never seen larger crowds for a display here, and every year we have enormous crowds. Good news for all our lovely pubs, bars and restaurants.

After a few wet days the common was a bit muddy, but the rain held off for a lovely evening of fireworks. Just superb.

The finale was captured on video by the Mayor of Lambeth, no less.

I gave it a miss this year. I must be getting curmudgeonly. And all the busy tubes made me grumpy.

Oh I could never miss fireworks! Although after last year's I did feel Lambeth had slightly cut back. Probably good.
