Dorset Steam Fair 2007 

Plenty of noise, loads of smoke and lots of people in oily boiler suits, walking around the small UK village of Tarrant Hinton, all indicate that this weekend is the middle of the annual Great Dorset Steam Fair, 29 August to 2 September, 2007. A bit like an alternative Burning Man Festival, the fair rejoices in bygone days, when most people's knowledge of a carbon footprint was that which appeared on the seat of slacking apprentices. Then after a week of chaos, the site returns to green fields and pastural calm.

As always, there is plenty to see and do; a day is hardly enough time to enjoy everything on offer. The Great Dorset Steam Fair is regarded as the leading steam and vintage preservation event in the world and is attended every year by well over 200,000 people from around the globe.
