Leylands are sought to celebrate the marque’s 125th anniversary. LEYLAND SOCIETY












Heritage marques are to be remembered this year as a reminder of Britain’s motor industry history, reports Nick Larkin

Leylands are needed for a major event celebrating 125 years of the marque. The show is set for the Leyland Trucks assembly plant at Leyland, Lancashire, on 28 August. Organisers the Leyland Society hope that as many examples of the marque as possible will be attending the Leyland Gathering & Leyland 125 Years Celebration.

All Leyland buses and lorries are welcome to attend, as are vehicles from all Leyland Group manufacturers including AEC, Albion, BMC, Bristol, Daimler, Guy, Thornycroft and Scammell, although organisers said that preference will be given to Leyland manufactured or designed models if there are space limitations.
