Classic cars go on show at Norwich Cathedral
Beautiful machines from more than 100 years of motoring have gone on show at the Charles Clarke Classic Car Rally.
Hundreds of people paid a visit to Norwich Cathedral to see about 80 vehicles on show, spanning everything from an elegant 1909 Stanley steam carriage to a sleek Mazda MX5 from 2008.
The vehicles arrived at the cathedral after a leisurely drive from Skeyton yesterday.
Brian Monks, from Saxthorpe, has organised the event for the past eight years with his friends and family.
He said the cars had a timeless appeal. He said: 'They take you back to the days when motoring was a proper experience. The hood down, the smell of leather and oil, it was good fun.'
The rally raised more than £1,000 for the Cromer-based charity About With Friends.
Now in its 22nd year, the event was named after a car enthusiast who died in a boating accident in 1998.
