A car enthusiast has built a dream garage for his collection of classic cars, including Porsches and an early VW Camper Van, on the outskirts of Somerset.

The Autobarn is set within the grounds of an eighteenth-century GradeII listed house and replaces several ‘haphazard’ outbuildings on the site.
