Thousands enjoy 'Audlem Festival of Transport'

The 24th annual 'Audlem Festival of Transport' took place on Sunday 30th July 2023.

The day began with a spectacular parade of more than 250 cars, commercial vehicles, tractors and motorcycles. The vehicles had assembled from 9am at Hankelow Green and departed from Hankelow at 11am to Audlem with the parade arriving at Audlem Playing Field off Cheshire Street from approximately 11:15am. Parade commentary was provided by Bill Consterdine from an elevated position at St James' Church in Audlem.

Car manufacturers on view included Alfa Romeo, Alvis, Austin, Bedford, BWW, Caterham, Chevrolet, Daimler, Dodge, Fiat, Ford, Heinkel, Jaguar, Lancia, Land Rover, Mercedes, MG, Morris, Pontiac, Porsche, Renault, Riley, Rolls-Royce, Rover, Saab, Triumph, TVR, Volkswagen, and Wolseley. Tractor manufacturers on view included Ferguson, Fordson, Massey Ferguson, McCormick, and Nuffield. Motorbike manufacturers included BSA, Suzuki, and Honda.

One of the vehicles on display was a 1947 Dodge pickup which spent most of its life in California, USA before being imported to the UK in 2013. Its last US owner used it at an almond farm. The pickup still has its original six-cylinder side valve engine and three-speed gearbox.

The pickup is owned by Richard Jones who runs the 'Old Classic Car' YouTube channel.
