Classic cars will be on view in the wonderful setting of Clitheroe Castle grounds on Saturday.

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 am and 3-30 pm on August 23rd.

Besides the cars themselves, 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 in Clitheroe.

There will also be short films showing throughout the day of the north west car industry including the work of Bond Cars.

Sound archive officer Andrew Schofield said: “Do come along and see cars from Austin 7’s to Rolls Royces with lots in between including Bond Mini Cars and Lotus Elans.

“Last year’s event was a great success with thousands of people turning up to see the cars in this stunning setting and also to learn more about the work of North West Sound Archive.”

If you would like further information please contact North West Sound Archive on 01200 427897 or e-mail nwsa@lancashire.gov.uk
