right guys this is only across the road from where i live, as luck would have it there was a classic and vintage ford day on as well so there was also a load of private owed vehicles there. sorry about some of the pics guys there not the best but i dont edit.

here is the web site if anybody is going to head over http://www.bcvm.co.uk/events.htm id ring and check before traveling as its not always open! 9th & 10th July should be of interest as its leyland festival which has 100 or so vehicles from tanks to steam tractors driving through the town.

the best looking hearse


















horse drawn bus


Leyland ladies, the face of leyland motors through the years


steam tractor


steam lawnmower


3 wheeled van






popemobile for john paul ii


fancy ice cream van


leyland tiger cub bus


there is plenty more to see, lots of displays and other stuff. i have more pics on my flickr here http://www.flickr.com/photos/scrappy...7626525683042/

This place is well worth a look if you like big trucks n stuff, pity they don't rotate the exhibits much though.
