The independent voice of the global moving industry


87-year-old Morris pantechnicon makes London - Brighton

Jun 22, 2015
Bishop’s Move has completed the 54th Historic Commercial Vehicle Society Challenge from Crystal Palace to Brighton on Sunday 3 May.

Neil Bishop, Business Development Director, was joined by his father and recently retired Bishop’s Move Chairman, Roger Bishop, as they crossed the finishing line in the company’s 1928 Morris 1-tonne pantechnicon, affectionately known throughout the company as ‘Sammy’.

Neil Bishop, said, “The Historic Commercial Vehicle Society London to Brighton Challenge is a firm fixture in the Bishop’s Move calendar. We are proud of our history and heritage and displaying our vehicle demonstrates the transformation the business has witnessed throughout the past 161 years. We would like to thank the Society for its accommodation on the day during what was another memorable event.”

The origins of the Historic Commercial Vehicle Society date back to 1958 when it was formed by a small group of enthusiasts with around a dozen preserved commercial vehicles. Today the Society has over 3,000 members who between them own more than 7,500 historic vehicles.
