These photos speak louder than any words.

Lord Hamilton of Dalzell (Gavin) & our youngest daughter Venetia, judged the cars & chose joint winners – a red 1949 MGTD & a grey jaguar.

Gavin said he was especially impressed with how much work they had done on their cars themselves & their knowledge of the history of the cars. The jaguar’s owner even had a press release showing it had been used in a bank robbery in the 1960s ! The owner of the MGTD had a photo of their car when it was only 2 yrs old, participating in a Welsh car rally in 1951. They each won a 6-pack of Apley Ale.

Churchfields allowed visitors to create their own icecreams & offered free tasters all day – handed out by Jo, photographed here on the bicycle.

Apley Walled Garden vegetables were displayed in our new barrow at the entrance. Clare of Scotty’s donkeys ran storytelling from her gypsy caravan whilst Matt ran a delicious barbecue in the Courtyard.
