RECORD crowds vis­ited Hes­keth Bank to see hun­dreds of clas­sic cars and mo­tor­bikes.

The Hun­dred End Fes­ti­val of Trans­port was held in Hes­keth Bank on June 9 and 10 and more than 1,000 peo­ple at­tended.

The event is or­gan­ised by Brian Moor­croft on his prop­erty in Hun­dred End Lane.

The an­nual fes­ti­val has been run­ning for 18 years and fea­tured around 300 vin­tage ve­hi­cles this year.

Vin­tage cars, mo­tor­bikes, trac­tors and a steam roller were among the ve­hi­cles on dis­play and en­ter­tain­ment was pro­vided by Wigan Ukuele Club.

Al­though there was no en­try fee, around £3,500 of dona­tions was re­ceived and will be given to the Spinal Unit Ac­tion Group in South­port.

Brian, who is a re­tired plumber from Hes­keth Bank, started the event when his life­long pas­sion for cars and vin­tage ve­hi­cles prompted him to share his in­ter­est with oth­ers.

Be­fore turn­ing his at­ten­tions to the rally, the 80-year-old had trav­elled all around the coun­try for 26 years, rac­ing mo­tor­bikes and cars.

Brian said: “The event went re­ally well. The weather was mar­vel­lous and it helped to at­tract record crowds.“

He has also con­firmed that the event will be re­turn­ing for 2019, and will be held on the sec­ond week­end in June.
