Collection of vintage cars and steam engines to go to auction

A steam engine auction is set to be held with hundreds of lots, including old tractors, vintage cars and train memorabilia, up for grabs.

The collection was put together by John Keeley, a businessman who began collecting motorbikes before adding bicycles, cars, and commercial vehicles to his portfolio.

He began displaying his collection at every year on the A4 between Maidenhead and Reading, first advertised as the Steam and Vintage Vehicle Rally.

The first event was held as a fundraiser to build a new village hall.

John passed away in 1999, but the shows he put on continued with the blessing of his wife, May.

After she died in April 2015, administrators instructed that the collection be sold on.

Vieiwings will be available on Friday, May 13 from 10am to 4pm, and the sale will begin on Saturday, May 14 from 8am, at The Yard, Warren Row Road, Knowl Hill.

Online bidding is available.

Call 01233 213777 to find out more.
