The Barrington classic car meet returned to the village green on Friday last week.
The car meet has been held on the first Friday evening of each month between May and September, and on New Year’s Day, for nearly 50 years – and was organised by Monty Goding until 2015.
Enthusiasts and staff at the village’s Royal Oak pub rallied together to put together the latest event now lockdown restrictions have eased and eager spectators were treated to an exciting range of offerings.
They included a 1928 Sunbeam Limousine, Rolls Royce Silver Shadow 11, a Morris 1000 Traveller, Land Rovers, and numerous top-of-the-range sports cars.
Excited owners from the South Cambs villages and beyond turned out – including Emily Cook from Bassingbourn.
