You can almost smell the cotton candy and hot dogs wafting from the Forest Recreation Ground when spinning around our 360° images of Goose Fair 2002, the 708th event.

In this panorama you can see the scale of the fair. With the permission of Reece, the ride manager, we've climbed on top of the Leaping Frog ride, found in the middle of this year's fair to give you an aerial shot of the activities.

Can you spot the following two new rides featured in this year's fair - the Crane Bungee Jump and the Equinox, which spins over 75 feet into the air, whilst the three cars revolve at the same time with its occupants standing throughout!

Let's see if we can find anyone selling mushy peas. Continue our virtual tour Goose Fair >>
