VIDEO: Thousands turn out for 37th Morval Vintage Rally at Bray Farm
The clocks were turned back to a gentler age when steam power ruled the countryside at a vintage rally in Cornwall.
Hundreds of spectacular engines and vehicles were on display at the Morval Vintage Rally this weekend.
The event celebrated its 37th birthday in style – attracting large crowds who enjoyed warm sunshine with hardly any rain.
Attractions at Bray Farm, Nomansland near Looe, South East Cornwall, included steam engines, tractors, motorcycles, cars and commercial vehicles.

The three-day event, which ends today, was held in aid of the Cornwall Air Ambulance and other charities.
As in previous years, vintage vehicle owners travelled from all over the country to take part.
The highlight of the event was a performance by a wheelbarrow stunt troupe, The Arrow Barrows display team. The comedy outfit, clad in RAF "uniforms", entertained visitors to the main ring, complete with characters dressed as the Red Baron and mystery driver The Stig from BBC's hit motoring show Top Gear.
Other shows included an unlikely game of musical chairs featuring steam engines as well as a tug-of-war.
Steve Monks, secretary of the motorcycle section and a veteran of 25 years at the event, said around 7,000 people had attended in the first two days with around 10,000 expected in total.
"It has been a great friendly atmosphere, a lot busier than last year and I have not stopped all weekend," he added.
"The weather has been great – we had rain on Saturday night and one shower first thing in the morning, but nothing all day Sunday.
"I had 75 bikes on Saturday, 85 on Sunday and 100 are expected Monday."
