Underskiddaw Bonfire and Fireworks

Underskiddaw’s annual bonfire and firework display is one of the largest of many erupting just after sunset in the Vale of Keswick. It draws an appreciative crowd of a couple of hundred people; the impressive bonfire and fireworks can be seen for miles around as well as by the locals, protected by a hawthorne hedge which has been trimmed recently. Tonight’s clear skies and full moon lighting the background skyline of the western fells, still peppered with flickering head-torch lights as the last hikers come down home from Grisedale Pike (791 m.)
