Eastern Bloc Vehicle Weekend: Oxford, May 2022:

All ‘Cold War Classic’ vehicles were invited to join us for this weekend celebrating the best of Eastern Bloc motoring.

Friday:  Early arrivals started the weekend at the attractive town of Woodstock before moving on to our base at Oxford and an enjoyable evening meal.

Saturday:  Starting in Oxford, we had a 40-mile drive to Greenham Common Airfield Control Tower.  The Tower visitor centre preserves the historical legacy of one of the few remaining buildings from this airfield made famous by Cold War peace protests. 

Lunch was at the H Café.  Our arrival intrigued the many motorcyclist regulars at this popular ‘truck stop’ style café.

From here, it was a short hop to the famous Pendon Museum where the model-maker’s skill preserves the idyllic rural scene and transport of the 1920s and 30s in miniature form.  Back in Oxford, we regrouped at an excellent Polish restaurant.

Sunday:  Leaving Oxford, our convoy took us on a 20-mile run for an Eastern Bloc vehicle meet and train ride at the lovely Chinnor and Princes Risborough Railway
