DALEMAIN, NEAR ULLSWATER, CUMBRIA

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Out & About -

The Wig­ton Mo­tor Club’s gath­er­ing is one of the big­gest Drive-It Day events in the North of Eng­land, usu­ally at­tract­ing up­wards of 150 clas­sic own­ers from both sides of the nearby bor­der.

The meet­ing’s free-of-charge but this year’s event is rais­ing funds for Cumbria-based chil­dren’s char­i­ties West House and Jig­saw, so it’s well worth mak­ing a do­na­tion when you pull in through the gates in your clas­sic.

It’s held in the grounds of Dalemain, a Grade I-listed coun­try house dat­ing back to the 14th cen­tury, and there’s row af­ter row of pre­dom­i­nantly Bri­tish clas­sics tak­ing up pride of space on the front lawn. We reckon there are few love­lier spots to stop on a Drive-It Day tour than here, where you can en­joy a well-de­served cuppa and look out over the Lake­land fells. Won­der­ful. www.wig­tonmc.co.uk 11am-2pm
