In 1555 seventeen protestants were burnt alive at the stake, in fornt of the Star Inn in Lewes, East Sussex as part of the Marian Persecutions. Every year the town holds a parade on November the 5th, Guy Fawkes Day, to commemorate the martyrs.
It is an event that draws a crowd of over 80,000 people, lining the streets as the processions go by, before splitting up to go to one of the many bonfire sites surrounding the town. It is the most extraordinary experience, total sensory overload creating an effect akin to being transported back in time. These are my favourites of the pictures I took on the night.
