Date:1930 - 1940 (c.)

Description:The bonfire was possibly made for Bonfire Night celebrations but given its size more likely for a royal celebration, perhaps George V's Silver Jubilee in May 1935 or George VI's Coronation in May 1937. Being the highest point in the area it would have been seen from Rugeley town and the surrounding area. Note the now frowned-upon tyres for burning.
