Tonight I paused while running past The Tower because what I saw caused me to stop. Not just the tourists ruining my 10k PB, but the sight of the flames in the moat.
Wikipedia puts the lower estimates of deaths at 15 million, so each flame represents at least 1,500 people. It's quite a sight.
It reminds me of another flame that commemorates more people from only a few short years later
When you can't help but jamm along to the riddim... @djoneman feeling those selections from @djbarelylegal during her set in the Moat.

One of the most prominent features of the town is the Motte, or the Moat as it is known. The structure itself is relatively young dating back to 1818 when it was built to house the explosives used in the construction of the harbour. But the site was used as a defensive position in the Bronze Age when it was fortified as a Rath. Later it was improved and provided protection against the Viking raids. The Normans reinforced it in the 12th and 13th centuries during their period in power. Today it is part of an attractive little park, giving views across the town and seawards to the Copeland Islands and, on clear days, to the Scottish coast and the Isle of Man.
The Norman family most closely associated with the Motte was de Coupland, who also gave their name to the Copeland Islands, about a mile offshore. The main island is a popular destination for summer visitors. Lighthouse Island, the second largest, has the remains of an old lighthouse and is an important bird sanctuary, whilst to the east lies Mew Island.
Thunderous sounds deep within the Moat - 2018 saw massive takeovers from @ninakraviz's @triprecordings, @zeezout_nl and the return of Hessle Audio with many a debut appearance taking place within it's towering walls.
