North Ox and Cotswolds MVT road run 2017

Recommended Posts

For this year the North Oxfordshire and Cotswolds Area of the MVT had their annual road run to Springhill Lodge camp which is I understand an ex POW camp and then ex DP camp, followed by a visit to Northwick Park which is an ex military hospital and DP camp. Both sites were quite remarkable to see and in varying states of preservation

We had about 20 vehicles on the run this year which was far easier to manage than the normal 40 to 50. The weather was great, but the heavens opened


when we arrived at our lunch stop and it stopped just as we got ready to leave. The Lord moves in mysterious ways.


It was a great day out. Here are some photos in no particular order.








One of the DPs refused resettlement and still lived here until 1985
