VISITORS will be able to turn the clock back when they visit the Wessex Midsummer Vintage at the weekend.

The event under the Vale of Westbury White Horse has attracted scores of modes of transport Vintage and Veteran vehicles loving restored to showroom condition.

Eric Gay, chairman of the show organisers, the Wessex Stationary Engine Club, is pleased with the number and selection of entries due to arrive.

He said: “We have a couple of grand old ladies off steam - full size steamers coming to the show along with dozens of mini steamers.

“We have vintage and veteran cars depicting several decades of motoring as well and vintage tractors, bicycles and motorcycles and some very unusual modes of transport. Something for everyone with stalls and attractions.”

Making a debut appearance at the Wessex show is Westbury’s Phil Gumm who is bringing his 1950 Mammoth Major having spent 20 months in restoration.

He said: “It’s been a real labour of love getting this grand old vehicle back into its former showroom condition.

“It’s a nice feeling in restoration knowing you have preserved something that would have been scrapped and you have saved some history.”

The event is being held at White Horse Country Park over two days on Saturday and Sunday, June 18 and 19 from 10am to 5pm.
