Yesterday Missus Moonbase and me took off into the hills of the the Holme valley near the Peak District. Besides being quite beautiful we were treated to a good view of model gliders being flown on the slopes of Holme Moss Summit, a brilliant view of the Holme Moss TV mast and station looking like something out of Dr. Who and probably best of all a walk round an unexpectedly fine collection of classic cars.
These were housed in the Carding Shed at Hepworth near Holmfirth, a venue well worth a visit and completely free. Besides Mini Coopers, old Mercedes and restored pick-ups, there was one car that literally took my breath away, the Aston Martin Lagonda.
I'd never seen one before and my first impression was that it was a long as a ship! It was huge and so futuristic its untrue. Beige in colour, the vehicle was in immaculate condition and the interior was to die for, like something straight out of UFO.
Alas I was cameraless and I have the luddite issue mobile so to give you an idea of what I was looking at I will seek the help of Wikipedia, albeit a different colour. Have any of you come across the Lagonda readers?
