The Charron-Laycock was a high quality "light" car. Its design earned it the reputation of a miniature Rolls Royce.

Between 1919 and 1926 they made somewhere in the region of between 500 to 700 cars. The car was very well made and it was more expensive than the average light car.

When I lived in Cheshire, I had a friend who had a Charron Laycock. It was about 1949-1950, or thereabouts.

My father joked that we should light the cntardsc andles, inferring that there were no headlights!
