Todmorden roared with the sound of Lambrettas and Vespas over the weekend as crowds turned out to make the annual Todrophenia rally another one to remember.

Organised by Mystery Tours Scooter Club, Saturday’s event saw Mods and scooterists young and old ride through town in convoy to Todmorden Cricket Club, from Hollingworth Lake, Littleborough.

Proud owners displayed their impressive, gleaming vehicles throughout the afternoon, while revellers enjoyed live music and entertainment.

Prizes including ‘Best of Show’, ‘Best Lambretta’ and ‘Best Vespa’ were all up for grabs for those extra special retro rides.

The festival feel continued into the evening as the party continued with more music at the Weavers Arms and the Polished Knob, Todmorden.

There’ll be more motoring madness in the valley this weekend, as the Hebden Bridge Vintage Weekend gets underway.
