Once a week during the spring and summer months a small South Norfolk village becomes a roaring Mecca for motorbikes from all over the county and beyond. From monkeybikes and mopeds to custom choppers and trikes, if it's got an engine, it's welcome.

As the sun sets in a sleepy South Norfolk village, you might expect to hear the last of the day's birdsong drift across the fields.

But once a week in Old Buckenham this serene sound is repalced by the revving of engines, as hundreds of motorbikes descend on the Ox and Plough pub, on The Green, for owners to swap stories of the open road and admire each other's set of wheels.

Young and old – and that applies to bikes and people – turn out for the gathering, known as Two Wheel Tuesdays although those on three wheels are also allowed in. It runs throughout the spring and summer, and bikers are welcomed to the pub with open arms.

The bikes even draw in nearby families, who admire both the supercharged newer models, as well as the classics.
