A CAVALCADE of classic cars will meander through the timeless scenery of the Ribble Valley on Sunday as the Lancashire Automobile club stages its 9th annual St George’s Day Rally.
More than 75 classic cars have so far been entered for the rally, ranging in date from 1930 to 1990. They will converge on Mitton Hall, the start and finish point of the rally, and set out from there between 9 and 11-30 a.m. on a leisurely 60-mile tour of the valley, taking in 20 of its villages along the way. As each car sets off at staggered intervals, its driver will be presented with a St George’s Day English Rose by representatives of the Royal Society of St George.
The route will take them through Whalley, Billington, Old Langho, Dinckley, Little Town/Dutton, Ribchester, Hothersall, Longridge, Thornley with Wheatley, Chipping, Whitewell, Dunsop Bridge, Newton, Slaidburn, Long Preston, Gisburn, Rimington, Downham, Worston, Barrow, Whalley and back to Mitton between 1 and 2 p.m. Spectators are welome and encouraged to view the cars at Mitton Hall or cheer them along at any point along the route.
