The sound of roaring engines returned to Shropshire for the Broseley Festival of Motorcycling.

The event attracted about 200 machines spanning the history of motorcycles, from pre-war thumpers to modern day superbikes, from café racers to cruisers, trikes and motorcycle engine cars.

Scores of residents turned out to see the machines whizz past and money was collected for Midlands Air Ambulance as part of the event.

The festival included a hill climb and a route took riders from Woodbridge Inn at Coalport Bridge, along the Coalport Road and into the outskirts of Broseley.

There was also a full ride-out through the Shropshire countryside, with bikers passing through neighbouring Much Wenlock, Ironbridge and Barrow.

Chris Barnard, who is part of the organising committee for the event, said: “It has gone really well.

“Last year we had about 70 bikes and this year we’ve come close to 200 so there’s been a big rise. There’s a whole range of machines from the 1920s to now.

“It was very busy and people lined the route and were cheering.

“We hope to have raised £500 for the Midlands Air Ambulance.

“We will be running it again next year,” Mr Barnard added.

The Broseley Festival of Motorcycling is one of three annual festivals held in the town.
