Cornhill - Bridgwater

Cornhill - Bridgwater
Description:
Cornhill in Bridgwater with the Corn Exchange behind and the 'Spirit of Carnival' statue in the foreground.

The statue was erected in 2005 to celebrate 400 years of celebration of Guy Fawkes' failed gunpowder plot.
Every 5th November there is a carnival which includes 'squibbing', as seen in this statue. Squibbing is the act of setting off a hand-held firework at the end of a stick (the cosh)
