Chris de Blocq van Kuffeler remembering the pain of his 1955 road trip across the south of England in the new family car…. In this edition we crawl across East Anglia on a very foggy Christmas Eve night in 1958, and we hear about one family’s excitement on taking delivery of their very first car – to a naval base in the Netherlands.

We would love to hear from you if you have an idea to contribute to the Voices from the Road podcast! We have assembled a small editorial panel whose members will consider the merits of your idea. Once it gets the thumbs-up, we can agree the format of your contribution, and how the recording will take place. In its simplest form, it can be done via an online meeting, but if it deserves a little extra attention, then a recording on location or with a group of others is also possible. Do get in touch with your idea!
