Carole Nash Barn Find

The show is home to the UK's biggest Barn Find display with around 20 barn finds in various states of rust, all bidding for visitors votes to be crowned the winner. 

How do you define a ' barn find'? To some, it has to be a vehicle covered in four decades worth of dust but to others, it is a car that has lain dormant for many years. The cars displayed are unearthed from garages, sheds, the bottom of peoples gardens hidden by years of weeds. Some have be rescued with the plan on restoring them back to their former glory, while others should be left to 'rust in peace.'
