CLASSIC cars will be on view in the wonderful setting of Clitheroe Castle grounds on Saturday, July 28th.

The North West Sound Archive, based at the Castle, is giving people the chance to see a range of classic cars on display in the area at the foot of the castle keep, between 11 a.m. and 3-30 p.m.

Besides the iconic cars there will be displays in the Pendle Hill room of long-forgotten North West car manufacturers including the Little Midland Company, which produced cyclecars from 1909 to 1919 at its Midland Works on Castle Street, Clitheroe. There will also be short films showing throughout the day of the North West car industry, including the work of Bond Cars and the Vulcan Motor and Engineering Company.

Ribble Valley councillor Simon Hore, who is also chairman of North West Sound Archive, said: “This is an interesting and unique event combining the world of classic cars and the work of North West Sound Archive.

“Come along and see these cars against the backdrop of the Castle and also learn more about the local car manufacturing industry of times past. There are still a few spaces left to display classic cars, so if you would like to bring along a car and join in the day do get in touch with the Sound Archive”.
