We were invited to attend the Lakeland Classic Car Show at Grasmere and decided to take 452. This is appropriate as many of the Saro Tiger Cubs operated in the Lake District and 452 itself was based at Kendal depot for most of its life with Ribble. It turned out to be a scorching hot cloudless day which is not always the case in the Lake District. 452 attracted many visitors and was especially popular with young children, shop many of whom tried out the drivers seat as their parents took photos.

Despite the heat 452 performed faultlessly although hill climbing is not its strong point, ambulance especially heading south out of Windermere. An enjoyable day in beautiful surroundings.

Many visitors inspected 452 and were favourably impressed

The show ground is set in beautiful countryside in Grasmere
