SLIDESHOW: Father's Day vintage vehicle events at Audley End House and Gardens and Denny Abbey Farmland Museum put smiles on dads' faces

Written byADAM LUKE

Dads admired a “charming” collection of classic cars at Audley End House and Gardens on Father’s Day.

An eclectic range of shapes and sizes were on display, including a 1926 Morris, a 1970 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow Series 1 and a Jaguar Silverstone convertible.

Melissa Gerbaldi, of English Heritage, said: “It was a really lovely event, attracting thousands of visitors on Sunday, many of whom were dads and their families celebrating Father’s Day.”

Events also took place at neighbouring Audley End Miniature Railway, in its 50th year, including an entertainer and storyteller, laser quest and pets corner for youngsters, while adults visited the Pimms tent, and enjoyed live music, craft stalls and a fly-by of historic aircraft.

Meanwhile, Denny Abbey Farmland Museum hosted its own vintage vehicle day on Sunday, with a range of giant meccano models, hovercrafts and a model railway proving particularly popular.

Youngsters were also able to get creative in a designated ‘make and take’ area.
