Visitors gathered at a village pub at the weekend to get a glimpse of some unique vehicles from the surrounding area.
For the second year running, Saturday saw the parking lot at The White Horse in Wroxton filled to the brim with the young, old and even some four-legged guests enjoying the sight of some 50 rare vehicles as part of the pub’s annual Weird and Wonderful Wheels event.
The display was first held in September last year and, following its success, landlord Peter Thornhill decided to do it again.
He said: “Following on from last year we’ve been able to expand even further and I think we had about two to three times as many visitors this year and every single person said they would like to come back again.”
The free day boasted something for everyone with a mixture of both vintage and modern vehicles of all types, from traction engines and racing cars to vintage motorbikes, racing lawn mowers and even a glider.
Mr Thornhill said: “It’s nice to see the vehicles and for people to get together and perhaps see something different that they’ve never seen before. Many pubs have a beer festival, which is a good idea, but it’s a bit exclusive.
“Here there’s something for the entire family and granddad can show his grandchildren what lorry he used to drive when he was younger – it brings people together,” he said.
“All being well we’re hoping to do it again next year and will try to expand the event even further.”
Those who have got a special vehicle they would like to exhibit at next year’s event can contact the pub on 01295 730223 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
