Enthusiasts gathered at Barrington Village Green for the monthly meet up, held on Friday.

Among the cars to go display opposite the Royal Oak pub was a 1927 Phantom 1 Rolls Royce with only 185,000 on the clock. It was originally owned by Indian royalty but is now in the possession of Mr van Essen, who lives in Meldreth.

Shepreth resident Ben Hogan also brought along his 1953 Austin A90, which proved unsuccessful when originally made for the American market.
