Fletching Bonfire 2008

This Saturday (11th October) sees [Fletching-> Fletching,_East_Sussex@ wiki] [Bonfire Society-> Sussex Bonfire Societies@ wiki]‘s processions and firework display, with, of course, the perfunctionary bonfire!

The local pub closes, except to bookings, but the bonfire society runs a marquee type arrangement next door called the Firecracker Inn.


Marshalled parking is at a farm, entrance @ TQ430233, which is accessed from the A272 at Piltdown.


The first procession starts at 1900 and runs north from the form up area at TQ430233 to Splayne’s Green before returning to the village for a break.¬† The second¬† procession is at 2045 and runs south towards Piltdown to “Denniker Cottage” and then back to the village to the firesite for fireworks at 2145.

For those with TomToms or other satnavs, TN22 3SP is the parking postcode, but make sure you come in from Piltdown (aim for TN22 3XP and turn left (if coming from Haywards Heath) or right (if coming from Uckfield) off the A272.
