Classic car fans showed off their pride and joy at the first car show held at Ladyfield Evangelical Church in Chippenham.

Eight cars and a tractor, dating from the 1930s-70s, were on display in the church car park off Hungerdown Lane on Saturday.

Organiser Jonathan Brain, a church community worker, said they plan to hold similar events again.

The oldest car was a Morris Eight, which was produced from 1935 to 1948, while from the 1950s there was an Armstrong Siddeley Sapphire, MF TF 1500 and an Austin A35.

Clive and Jane Halliday from Castle Combe won a bottle of petrol treatment for their 1960s Triumph TR4.

Mr Brain said: “What a great few hours of oily fun. Considering the epic downpours, I reckon the first ever Ladyfield classic car get together was an incredible success. We are grateful to all who came with motors and all those locals who came along to have a look.”

Ladyfield’s Cafe 316 is open every Saturday from 10am to noon.
