Classics at the Castle - Sherborne Castle, July 2010
Meets, Shows and Events
Way back in sunny July a convoy of ten cars left Bristol for this years 'Classics at the Castle' held at Sherborne Castle in Dorset. We left McDonalds Longwell Green about 8 o'clock, stopping at Ston Easton on route to join up with the cars traveling from the other side of town. It took about an hour to arrive at Sherborne where we were met by Russ Baker in his Devon, he had traveled down separately stopping overnight just for the show. Our pitch was excellent right in front of the castle as we had been promised, giving a good back drop for photos.
 
 
Our turn out of cars was just as impressive featuring three Model A's, three Model B's, a Model T, a Fordson, a Devon, a Dorset, and an Austin 16.
 
 
 
 
 
By 9.30 cars were set up and everyone went their own ways either looking around the stalls, food halls, grounds, castle, auction house, other exhibits or just chilling out.

People travel from all over the British Isles to exhibit here, showing how popular this event has become, but it still baffles me why you have to pay again to gain access to the live auction. Near on a 1000 cars were in attendance with 2 separate Rallies finishing in the Castle grounds making sure there is something for all tastes an event not to be missed.

We have been invited back next year and told the spot in front of the Castle is ours again.
