The Stooke collection.

 Numerous traveller vehicles and their crews hung around the site for several weeks after the festival as it was a pretty cool park up . Artist David Stooke had his own bus then and he took these shots of the campsite in the weeks following the Fayre.

"I was there from about 10 - 12 days before the main weekend and about 7 - 10 days afterwards so saw it grow and diminish with the wild, thrilling main weekend in the middle."

We are extremely fortunate that David has graciously allowed us to display his photos here for the public to enjoy, why not visit his website and view his excellent paintings of festivals of the past and also his more recent work which encompasses a wide range of subject matter.
