Classic cars, steam engines, tractors, motorcycles and many more forms of transport drew visitors to Hellingly across the August bank holiday weekend.

David Esmond, secretary of the festival and a director of the club, says more than 10,000 people turned out for the event, which is now in its 42nd year, and that upwards of 1,500 exhibits were on show.
