Those of you who were out on our St Georges Day Run may not have noticed a representative of H&H Auctions out and about on the event. It was Adam Sykes armed with is trusty camera. His intention was to choose his favourite car on the day. But in the end he was so impressed with the entry he selected three cars. So we asked him to rank them – not an easy task but we now have his decision.
In third place we have Richard Woods fantastic Mercedes SL600.
Moving back in time we have the 1951 Jaguar XK120 of Callum Hewitt.
But the car which Adam finally settled on as his favourite was Jim Clarke’s 1953 Mercedes 300S
Many thanks Adam hope you enjoyed your day.
Just a few pictures from a most enjoyable day. Startingand Finishing at Blackburn Northern Sports taking in some of the Ribble Valley, Pendle Hill, Downham, Trawden to a coffee stop at Colne. Then on to Hebden Bridge before returning via the Grane Road and Pleasington.
Great cars and great company.
Many thanks to Mike Wood, Eileen Dyson and Alan Shawfor the shots.
Well the Rally of the Bridges took place under the watchful eye of our Clerk of Course Geoff Awde. With over 40 entrants dating from the 1920’s to almost the present day there was something for everyone.
As the name implies the event crossed a fair number of bridges on the Lancaster Canal as well as motorway, rivers and streams. The wet weather the week beore also gave us a couple of fords we weren’t expecting!
In total over the 72 miles of the route we crossed over 53 bridges and went under 4 making a grand total of 57 bridges.
The weather was most kind and we can’t give enough thanks to the Whearsheaf in Garstang for hosting the start and finish.
Below are just a few of the pictures taken at the start and en route by rally legend Mike Wood plus a few of my own taken at Brock Bottoms.

St George’s Day – Photographs
We hope you enjoyed our run – it was great to see so many fantastic cars and happy people! The weather was a real bonus but we can’t promise that on future events!
I don’t know if you noticed but we had a couple of photographers our on the event. Mike Wood and Eileen Dyson picked a couple of sutable vantage points en route and Nigel Bentley was at the coffee halt so managed to get most of you as you arrived. Alan Shaw was also out on the route and got some fine pictures.
We can let you have copies of the photographs free of charge if you would like a memory of the event. Nigel Bentley will send pictures direct if you email him at:
If you would like one of Mike’s or Eileen’s pictures simply email me at email@example.com and I will see if he managed to get a shot of you.
Obviously Mike and Eileen probably haven’t got everyone so we may not have your picture out on the run itself.
I have copies of all Alan Shaw’s pictures so I will check them as well if you ask. All Alan’s pictures should credit Alan if you circulate furether
Both Nigel and I will need your reg number and vehicle description to identify you.
Hoping to see you on the 22nd May for our Rally of the Bridges.
