Held at the Prickwillow Engine Museum, more than 60 classic cars were on display.

During the day, an invited guest toured the classic car display to select the car they would most like to take home, which was won by Mr Rayment with his 1933 Austin Seven.

The show attracted exhibitors and visitors from far afield, with museum volunteers running many of the large diesel pumping engines for all to enjoy.

Next Saturday (June 29), Prickwillow Engine Museum is hosting an evening with Port of Wells harbour master, Robert Smith MBE.
