    Default MAIDEN NEWTON AT WAR - 22nd - 24th June 2012

    Just to let some of you know in advance should you wish to come along.

    'Maiden Newton at War' is held in the Dorset village of Maiden Newton and is an excellent event held every two years where most of the village gets involved with everybody dressing up and numerous events over the weekend. There are numerous reenactors, vehicles and displays and a few 'battles' (the last event had a Seafire from Yeovilton straffing the battlefield!).
    The location is excellent (if not unique) and there is lots of local wartime history - please see the link (it does need to be updated!, my friend is on the commitee and I'll let him know)

    I have added a few pictures taken at the previous events

    A little bump for this thread in case anybody missed it - I'll give it another nudge nearer the time.

    I can't recommend it enough. The are not many events like this in the South West, and to get a whole village involved is quite impressive. Their website probably does not do them justice but reflects that it is local run event. The main events and displays feature around the village school with static displays/collections in the hall, marquee and stalls in the playing field, vehicles and static reenactor displays in an adjoining field and battles take place in a small valley which you overlook. It's an event that you can stay all day at and not get bored!
