VINTAGE vehicle enthusiasts will be able to take a road trip down memory lane in Goathland this weekend.

On Saturday and Sunday there will be an array of motors from the swinging sixties, including some of the cars used on the famous tv series Heartbeat, on display in the centre of the village.

They will include the police cars used by the Aidensfield bobbies, the land rover used by Nurse Cassidy, a Moorland taxi, some minivans and hopefully an ambulance.

It is being organised by Phil Hopkinson from Aidensfield Stores and Garry Middleton of Goathland Tea Rooms who between them own one of the old police cars from the show.

Mr Hopkinson said: “We are not connected to the 60s weekend but the vehicles we are getting over are 60s vehicles so we are tying it because there will be a few more people about who will be interested to see it.

“The chap who owns the mini van bought it from the lady who used to provide the police cars. He comes up two or three times a year and put it to me that it would be nice to contact some of the other owners - some are able to come and some aren’t interested.”

Deefer the dog is set to put in an appearance and actor David Lonsdale who played David Stockwell for 13 years will be there on the Saturday from around 12.30pm.

He will also be signing a charity calendar featuring photographs of the Heartbeat vehicles.

The profits raised from the sale of the calendars will be split between the Great North Air Ambulance and the National Kidney Federation.

So far over 100 copies have been sold and another 150 are being printed.
