‘Classic Stony’ June 2022 – Report

From the Classic Stony website –

Located on the Roman Road, Watling Street and the site of an ancient ford, for hundreds of years this historic market town has offered hospitality to the road-weary traveller. Travellers today will find to their delight, many fine hostelries and restaurants and places of interest, nestling in this place of good cheer.

The Stony Stratford Classic Car Festival – now known as ‘Classic Stony’, has grown in stature over the years and now attracts an incredibly varied display of vehicles from concourse to ‘well used’.

Run in partnership with Stony Stratford Business Association, as part of ‘Stony Live week’, this is an informal gathering of classic and vintage cars and motorcycles. The Market Square stage will host live music throughout the day.

The event runs from 9:30 am until 4.00 pm. Spectators are free but the event is run in aid of Willen Hospice so there will be opportunities to donate to this incredibly worthy cause.

The event’s historic success has now drawn the good people of Stony, restaurateurs, shopkeepers and publicans alike, to throw open their doors and join the revelry.” 

My wife and I had attended the excellent ‘Vintage Stony’ event on New Year’s Day earlier this year, I vowed then that I would return in the Summer for the ‘Classic’. We stayed overnight at the Holiday Inn Express hotel at junction 15 of the M1, we planned to explore Northamptonshire for a few days after the @classic’ event. We set out on the short journey from the hotel to Stoney Stratford, the forecast rain seemed to have passed over but it was extraordinarily cold for June. In fact, it was 11 C. with a wind chill factor that made it feel even colder. I had commented on the weather in my ‘Vintage’ report, I remarked on the fact that at 13 C. it was quite mild for a New Year’s Day. The downside then was the rain, it is England where these events are taking place after all :-).

Thank goodness the weather, on both occasions, was eclipsed by the quality and variety of the cars and motorcycles on display. You don’t have to take my word for it – let these photos tell the story –
