hearsay It is said you have to keep an eye on your garden gate at Halloween. The gate might be removed and set on the bonfire to be burnt on Guy Fawkes Night. This seems to be a memory of what were called Butt Hill Nights when gates were stolen to make an enclosure round the maypole, in which other stolen household goods were stacked, to be found by their owners the next day.

notes defensible village; an arrangement of ranges of houses with exits at the corners of the green which could be walled up
