Three Okefords Rally 2024, Shillingstone, Dorset

May 18, 2024

Three Okefords Preservation Society

Three Okefords Rally, in North Dorset, is an annual event that is more than just a display of steam engines and vintage vehicles. It is a celebration of engineering history and rural heritage, which provides a memorable experience for all who attend.

Set against the backdrop of a beautiful and rural North Dorset landscape, Three Okefords is one of the highlights of the year for me. The Rally takes its name from the three villages in the vicinity: Okeford Fitzpaine, Shillingstone, and Child Okeford.

On the day I was there, at about 11:45 there was a sudden downpour and thunderstorm, which produced prolific puddles and mud, and stopped all working demonstrations. You can get an idea of the weather from my photos.

The photos of these dogs were taken on Saturday 18th May, at Three Okefords. I deliberately don’t include photos of the owners.
