The cars were a variety of makes including Alvis, Austin, Rover and Triumph, and all  gleamed in the sun light.  They came from all parts of the UK, too

It was such a success our visitors said they intend to come again as soon as they can arrange it, so expect to see this event billed for 2017.

What made the day even more complete was the fact that the windmill sails turned all day for the first time since last August.  Truly a memorable day.
