Gillingham in Dorset (with a hard g as in great as opposed to the Gillingham in Kent which is soft as in giraffe...) has a meadow in the centre of the town and once a year in June there is a petrol heads' gathering there something akin to a village fete.
Two and four wheelers are equally represented and the atmosphere is convivial and informal. Just ride / drive in, park up and stay as long as you like. There are a few club stands, the Royal Enfield Owners Club, Dorset VMCC, Gold Star Owners Club and Norton Owners Club were all out in force. Below a few pictures from the day.
