Some of the country’s most luxurious cars rolled in to Raithwaite Estate last weekend.

The Rolls Royce Enthusiasts’ annual gathering, known this year as the Sandsend Saunter, saw The Keep car park packed with Rolls Royces dating from 1928 to the most modern marques.

Pictured left is a 1928 Rolls Royce 6 cylinder 20 hp, which was the first Rolls to be built for the owner, rather than a chauffeur, to drive.

On the right is a 1957 Bentley S1 - one of only 27 coachbuilt specimens - parked outside Gardeners Cottage.
