Bygone Days at South Gorley - EARLY YEARS BELOW
GO TO 2010 ----------- GO TO 2011 --------GO TO 2012

"Bygone Days" is a special event run over the first weekend of August every year at Brooklands farm, South Gorley near Fordingbridge.

Elaine Micklewright and Campbell Sampson raise thousands of pounds every year for charity.

The Ringwood Woodcarvers and the Hants & Dorset Stickmakers share a stall while exhibiting their work and demonstrating.

This farm was an RAF base during the war and the organisers still have contacts, the flying displays are amazing, it's worth coming just for that, not to mention the model aircraft.

Crowds listen to band

this is "bygone days" the crowd listens to the hyde band whilst eating cream teas
