Classic cars from the Wolseley family of vehicles will be taking part in a Jubilee Tour of Britain in order to help drum up donations so that Nuffield Place can be kept in pristine condition.
The house itself was originally owned by William Morris, the man who would eventually become Lord Nuffield and take charge of Wolseley Motors towards the end of the 1920s.
The estate is now under the control of the National Trust, but to ensure that it can still be visited by the public, it is necessary to secure plenty of cash.
As a result, the Wolseley Register is organising this tour so that classic car enthusiasts can raise awareness about the fundraising campaign.
Nine vintage Wolseleys will be amongst the large number of classic cars that are going to be taking part in the event, between the 4th and the 20th of August.
The vehicles will be winding their way between a number of famous National Trust properties throughout the month, according to Classic Car Mart.
One of the most prestigious vehicles to head out on the rally will be a 1937 Wolseley Dophead Coupe, which was originally owned by Lord Nuffield.
