People flocked to the village to admire the rare and vintage vehicles on display at the event, which took place on Saturday morning.

Motor-enthusiasts were treated to a selection of Fords, Morris Minors and an Austin Devon which all made an appearance on the day.

A rare Morris Minor Eight Series car from 1948 was at the show, and its type made by the manufacturer had been used by the Royal Mail until the 1970s.

Paul Sanders also brought along his Ford F100 vehicle which was made in 1956, and the F-Series’ most popular model is now in its 13th generation.
