Best of West Kent Veteran Car Run 2015 at Hever Castle Kent

Best of West Kent Veteran Car Run 2015 at Hever Castle Kent On Wednesday 29th July I photographed the Hever Castle part of the Best of West Kent Veteran Car Run.

This is an annual event organised by The Veteran Car Club of Great Britain, with over sixty cars taking part, dating back to 1898 and the majority up to the end of 1918. The owners looked very proud as they drove their cars into the grounds of Hever Castle, having first arrived in the morning at Chartwell, Westerham, Kent, then onto Chiddingstone Castle and finishing at Hever Castle for a picnic lunch.

It was wonderful to see so many cars over one hundred years old looking so resplendent in this picturesque part of the Kent countryside steeped in history.

My photographs below tell some of the story.
