A FLEET of vintage Wolseley motor cars visited Ryedale when the Wolseley Register organised its spring tour.

Thirty-five members came to the district in 21 cars from all parts of the UK and the Netherlands, and based themselves in the Feathers Hotel in Helmsley.

From there they visited many of the area’s attractions, including Eden Camp, Ryedale Folk Museum and Scampston Walled Garden.

The cars, spanning five decades of production, were seen in many of Ryedale’s towns and villages.

Clive Button, chairman of the Wolseley Register, said that a highlight was a private visit to Duncombe Park where members were treated to a tour of the house and garden.

Wolseley was one of the first British motor manufacturers, with its first car appearing in 1896.

Production continued for 80 years, with the last Wolseley being made in 1975.

The Wolseley Register is the original and largest club for enthusiasts of Wolseley motor cars.
