People have the chance to step back in time at a classic car display.

Wynyard Hall, on the outskirts of Hartlepool, is set to host a classic car show this weekend.

Some of the finest and fastest vehicles from almost 100 years of motoring, are set to pull into the picturesque grounds for a full display on Sunday.

Organised by Northern Bygones Society, they hope as many people as possible will come along and see the car extravaganza.

The free car show will take place between 10am and 3pm, with tickets for the new Wall and Garden attraction costing £5. Cars included in the show are a 1930s Rolls Royce, which featured in the TV show, Heartbeat, a Lotus from the 1990s, a 1967 Morris 1000 and even a 1954 Ferguson tractor.

Show organiser Paul Jackson said: “We’ve got vehicles from just about every decade.

“They’ll bring back lots of memories for older visitors, while youngsters will really enjoy seeing how automotives have changed over the years.”

The society stages up to 15 car shows a year, including several in Hartlepool, but this is it’s first outing to Wynyard Hall.

“Hartlepool is a hugely popular area for the society,” said Mr Jackson. “The hall is a fabulous setting, with the Wall and Garden development being a perfect backdrop for the cars.”

The development will eventually cover four acres and be one of the largest rose gardens in the UK with over 3,000 roses in display.

The £1.6 million development which has its own driveway and extensive car park, also features a visitor centre, shop and cafe.
