Photos: Classic cars on display at Clitheroe Castle

Waiting for Video...

Thousands of people attended this year’s classic car show set in the wonderful grounds of Clitheroe Castle.

The North West Sound Archive, based at the Castle, gave people a chance to see more than 40 classic cars on display over the Bank Holiday weekend in the area at the foot of the Castle Keep.

Some of the vintage vehicles on show included Austin 7s, Lotus Elans, Rolls-Royces, a Corvette C3 Stingray, a Damler 66 Coup, a Morris Minor Traveller and many more.

Besides the cars themselves, there were displays in the Pendle Hill Room of long-forgotten North West car manufacturers, including the Little Midland Company which produced cycle cars from 1909 to 1919 at its Midland Works in Castle Street, Clitheroe.

There were also short films showing throughout the day of the regional car industry, including the work of Bond Cars.

Sound archive officer Andrew Schofield hailed the day a huge success. He added: “We had good weather which helped to attract thousands of classic car enthusiasts. In fact, we had record number of people this year. The event is in its third year and was extremely successful. We hope to host another show next year.”
