Hundreds of people piled into Axbridge's town square to view a variety of vintage and classic cars.

The vintage and classic car event saw 48 cars and three motorcycles take over The Square on Sunday.

More than 300 people visited throughout the day to view the cars and take their pictures with the motorcycles.

Event organiser Liz Scott said it was a ‘brilliant’ event and it could not have gone better.

She added: “The weather was very kind to us and it was great to see everyone enjoying themselves.

“It was really lovely to see the old square filled with the classic cars and motorcycles instead of the modern vehicles we drive today, it just seemed to fit.

“It is a great area to be in, especially with something like this going on.”

The car show, which was sponsored by the town’s Chamber of Commerce, coincided with the annual Blackberry Carnival.
