Bishop's take part in the HCVS London to Brighton run!

08 May 2017
3 Generations of Bishop's on the HCVS London to Brighton run 2017

Sunday, 7th May, saw 3 generations of the Bishop's family take part in the 56th Historic Commercial Vehicle Society's London to Brighton run!

This year, the annual event saw a good turnout of vintage buses, fire engines from a bygone era and historic commercial vans in various shapes and sizes.

Our historic 1 tonne commercial Morris removals van was driven by Neil Bishop (Chairman & Business Development Director), and his father, Roger Bishop (recently retired) and enthusiastically assisted by Neil's 6 year old son, Thomas.

The historic pantechnicon removals van was built in 1928 and is now 89 years old. Affectionately known as "Sammy", she made light work of her journey from Crystal Palace, London, to Brighton, and arrived in good time to take part in the public exhibition on Madeira Drive.
