Vintage cars roll up to historic house for classic vehicle rally in Chorley

The sun shined down on a classic vehicle rally at Astley Park in Chorley on Sunday.

Visitors were able to peruse the line up of vintage vehicles and snap photos.

Phil Pearman of Lancashire Vehicle Club said: “The weather was very good and we had a turn out of over 150 classic vehicles attending ranging from an Isetta bubble car, silver cross prams to a convertible Rolls Royce. The public attended in good numbers with many children wanting to sit in cars and have their photos taken and ride on the vintage round about and have a go on the test your strength machine. The winners of the Astley Cup which was voted for by the vehicle owners themselves, were Margaret and Ralph Jagger who own a very popular yellow Bedford Midi Bus, a big hit with children as the loved to go inside an get old style bus tickets and sweets.”
