Guy Fawkes’ Explosion Would Have Devastated London

Experts at the University of Wales in Aberystwyth have worked out for the first time the true extent of the damage Guy Fawkes would have caused if his daring deed had not been foiled on 5 November 1605. They found that within a radius of about 40m, everything would have been razed to the ground. Within 110m, buildings would have been at least partially destroyed. And some windows would have been blown out even as far as 900m away
