Beacons were lit across the region on Thursday night to mark the Queen's 90th birthday.
Crowds came to Dyrham Park near Bath to see a brazier lit celebrating the occasion.
Prince Charles said they were uniting Britain in appreciation of the Queen's lifetime of service:
Dozen of beacons will be lit across West to celebrate The Queen’s 90th birthday.
As the sun goes down, they'll be lit at churches, farms, country parks, village greens and country estates - lighting up the sky from Glastonbury Tor in Somerset to the Westbury White Horse in Wiltshire.
There is a long tradition of celebrating special royal occasions such as jubilees, coronations and birthdays with the lighting of beacons.
The last celebration was in 2012 for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
The beacons will be specially built gas-fuelled structures, traditional bonfires or braziers on top of a tall wooden post.
