Up to 200 pristine vintage vehicles will park on the front lawns of Brodsworth Hall, Doncaster, for the site’s Classic Car event next weekend.

“This isn’t just an event for petrol heads, but a wonderful opportunity to see 100 years of automotive history in the beautiful setting of Brodsworth Hall’s grounds,” said Maddie Hawkins, visitor operations site supervisor.

“As a classic car is defined as being over 25 years old, most of our adult visitors will see examples of the cars that would have been on the road during their childhood, whether they are 25 or 85, most of them lovingly kept or restored by dedicated owners.”

The line-up on Sunday, August 28, from 12pm to 5pm is expected to include vintage classics and some unusual vehicles, including a 1911 Stanley Steam Car, which uses an external combustion engine to generate steam to power the vehicle.

Other marques include Morris Minors from the 1950s, Triumph Spitfires from the 60s and Rolls-Royces spanning several decades.
