On Saturday I had the privilege of spending the evening with some old friends. Every year we all try and make it to the field opposite Himley, near Dudley, to watch the firework display provided by Dudley Council.
Himley has a link to bonfire night. Guy Fawkes fled to Holbeach house near Himley to hide away from the impending doom after trying to blow up the houses of parliament. The building is now a retirement home and still features bullet holes in the walls of the basement.
