Classic Wolseley cars meet up at Wolseley UK
Classic Wolseley cars from as far afield as Australia convened for a pit stop at the head office of original name bearer Wolseley UK as part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of classic-car association Wolseley Register. The event was a chance for members to meet up with their cars before moving on to the Register’s national rally at Nuffleld Place in Oxfordshire.
30 members were greeted by Steve Ashmore, managing director of Wolseley UK and Sir Charles Wolseley, patron of the Wolseley Register and a direct descendent of Wolseley UK’s 1887 founder Frederick York Wolseley.
Wolseley cars date back to 1895, and the company became one of the most successful British manufacturers of motorised transport before the First World War — with vehicles that include cars, buses, lorries, railcars and locomotives.
Wolseley UK is a leading distributor of heating, plumbing and building products and has supported the Wolseley Register since its beginnings in 1964.
