The second annual Classic Land Rover Gathering held in July on a farm outside Skillington in Lincolnshire was even bigger and better than before. Organisers had listened to showgoers the year before and provided additional camping space along with more club and trade participation and several high-profile guest speakers were in attendance.

Participating clubs included the Military Vehicle Trust, Ex-Military Land Rover Association and Lightweight Land Rover Club. Also present for a return visit were Popski’s Private Expeditions.

It was held in the same scenic location on Lower Farm outside Skillington village with easy access from the A1. Despite concerns over fuel prices and the odd rain shower on Saturday, attendance was good with a great atmosphere and plenty of interest in the military Land Rover stands.
