9th October 2023
On the 4th September this year, Hemswell Court was delighted to welcome members from The Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts Club to celebrate their post-war six cylinder rally.
Our guests enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and comfortable accommodation which Hemswell Court offers and delicious food specially prepared by our chefs, all of which received lovely comments on their departure.
The cars were stunning and sat beautifully on our landscaped gardens. Hope you enjoy the photos as much as we enjoyed taking them. Thank you to everyone for coming and we look forward to welcoming you all again.
*The organiser has sent a couple of extra photos and an itinerary of their visit which I am pleased to add –
“Twenty two cars attended the annual rally of the PWSC Register of the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts Club which was held at Hemswell Court over five days in early September. The Register caters for Rolls-Royce and Bentley cars built between 1945 to 1955. The earliest car attending the meet was a 1949 drop-head coupe by Park-Ward. They were joined by several models from other registers, the latest being a 1995 Bentley Continental R two door coupe by Mulliner and a guest from the Aston Martin Club. Members attended from all over the UK some having travelled over 180 miles. A coach trip into Lincoln with visits to the Castle and Cathedral proved to be very popular. Drive outs on the following days saw visits to places of historical interest but the most popular were those associated with Lincolnshire’s wartime past. For most the highlight of the tours was to the East Kirby Heritage Aviation Museum where they were treated to the sight of the Lancaster ‘Just Jane’ being fired up and taxiing. Thereafter the group and its cars were photographed with the aircraft as a backdrop. The visit to the International Bomber Command Centre at Canwick was also thought to be excellent. The ‘Iron Men’ memorial to those air crew of the Dambusters raids who did not return was particularly moving. Without exception, members agreed that this years venue was among the best we have ever had. The overall experience was exceptional, delivered by well lead, enthusiastic members of staff. One member commented that ‘we arrived as guests but left as friends.”
