We always have a bonfire with a Guy. This is one from a couple of years ago.



However, during this summer I turned our usual bommy site into a kids play area so I've had to rethink my bonfire.



I did the only sensible thing and knocked down one of my sheds and it's lean to greenhouse (a death trap if ever there was one) and opened up the bottom of the garden, which until then had been dead space.



New bonfire site and a nice paved seating area where the shed had been. :)

Edit: this years guy.

Yep, we always have a Bonfire after the Pyro. This is mainly to burn the pallet decking and firework stands.

just use a 45 gallon oil drum from my dad's work place make 4 holes around it near the bottom, 4 around above the middle, and four around it between to 2 previous layers and fill it with wood from the pallets that we get over the year. each year the big branches on the trees lining the field are cut down/ pruned so we get logs and kindling as-well to get it going, along with a bag or 2 of left over BBQ charcoal/ lighters. not a huge fire but it's good enough for a small gathering of up to 20 ish to keep them warm.
and it doesn't scorch the ground if you make a steel stand about a 8 inches high for it to sit on.

Dont know how you guys get the barrels like you do :p when i wanted a small pond had to buy a half whiskey barrel from garden center which was costly.

Spent about a week looking for a beaten up rusty old barrel but never found one :p
