Tractors, steam engines and vintage cars rolled into West Bay for the return of a popular rally.

The West Bay Vintage Rally returned for 2023 with a whole host of vintage vehicles on show, alongside displays, market stalls and vehicle parades.

It is the 45th year the rally has been held, although the event took a two-year break during the covid-19 pandemic.

First held in 1979, visitors came from near and far to enjoy the two-day show at Melplash Show Ground.

The rally, held by West Dorset Vintage Tractor and Stationary Engine Club (WDVTSEC), helps raise money for local charities and community projects, with over £60,000 donated in recent years.
