The 175 vintage cars and motorcycles parked at Cadbury, a Wyevale Garden Centre, where hundreds of people admired the vehicles on show.

BBC Points West presenter Alex Lovell then waved drivers off on a 30-mile countryside 
drive through Burrington Combe and Cheddar, before they parked up at the Salthouse Fields in Clevedon.

The event was the third of its kind organised by the Clevedon Lions Club, and it has become a regular fixture in Congresbury’s calendar.

A variety of trade, craft and charity stalls also provided plenty of entertainment.
