A vintage vehicle rally held at Castle Hedingham at the weekend proved a success with more than 200 people through the gates each day.

The annual Colne Valley Railway event featured more than 250 exhibits, including classic and vintage cars, motorbikes, steamrollers, commercial vehicles and stationary engines, along with charity and trade stalls.

Visitors to the rally enjoyed rides on the full-sized steam train, heritage diesel trains and miniature trains.

The event has been run for several years by Colne Valley Railway at its Castle Hedingham site but, with its relocation next year, the future home of the railway looks uncertain.

All events and operating days will run as scheduled this year while the Colne Valley Preservation Society, a registered charity, looks for a new site.
