Shelsley Walsh – Thrill on the Hill

Last Saturday saw Shelsley Walsh Hillclimb hosting the first Thrill on the Hill event organised by Morgan Motor Company. This event was the largest gathering of Morgan’s in the UK with all models displayed from the company’s prestigious history.

Residents of the Teme valley were invited for a tour of the Morgan factory in Malvern to coincide with the Shelsley Walsh event. The factory is still located where the company began and still produces the majority of it’s car’s using traditional coach building skills and hand crafted bodywork. It was incredible to see how they integrated new and old skills to produce highly exceptional unique cars while still attempting to meet production demands.

 

There was plenty of entertainment on offer at the event ranging from a huge number of cars attempting the hillclimb (including a steam engine) to an impressive aerial display from a Spitfire. As it attracted a large number of visitors to the hillclimb and generated considerable interest, it will hopefully become a regular event in the future.
