THESE days we all pretty much take the car for granted - although rising fuel prices may force us to re-think that.

But in the 1960s, a car was still seen as a luxury and many families had yet to have their first car.

This wonderfully-evocative photo from that period shows a couple heading out for a Sunday drive into the Trough of Bowland.

The renowned beauty spot was the place to go if the weather was nice and it could often be a problem finding somewhere to park up and enjoy the spectacular views.

A picnic would normally be loaded into the back of the car, although enterprising ice cream sellers could be found at selected spots en route.
