Tar Barrels of Ottery

Heard the hand-held cannons firing from the four corners of our town this morning, starting at 5.30 am. Looking forward to these making their noisy rounds of the pubs this lunchtime, and later this evening going to watch the lighting of the bonfire and then the rollers running by us with their burning barrels.
