It was throwback to a golden age of motoring when a village held a popular weekend show of vehicles spanning decades.

Parson Drove car and bike show attracted families from across the region to browse a wide range of vehicles as the sun shone adding to the festival atmosphere.

With camping for 80 pitches and a welcoming community of like-minded enthusiasts, the event is fast becoming a must do on the calendar of motoring fans.

The event is into its 12th year and not only attracted judges from national motoring magazines but also raised around £14,000 for charity.

Helping bring in visitors was a beer festival, live music, refreshments, a show and shine, stands, stalls and side shows.
