21st Cumbria Easter Rally

A superb 1948 AEC Regal III with Burlingham bodywork, new to Florence of Morecambe


The 21st Cumbria Easter Rally took place this year on the weekend of 20th & 21st April. For the uninitiated the event is a vintage commercial vehicle rally, with vehicles displayed at several sites in Kirkby Stephen and Brough. The numerous vehicle displays are made easily accessible to visitors by way of a frequent vintage bus service, which connects all the display locations in the Eden Valley. A selection of vehicles that were in use on the shuttle bus service on Saturday 20th April are illustrated here.
