Om boka

The village of Mixbury is situated at the most northern point of Oxfordshire. Set in rolling countryside, it sits alongside the now abandoned Great Central Railway. Surrounded by fields, rivers, woodlands and farmyards, Mixbury was the perfect place to grow up.
Mixbury Gals and Pals uncovers the childhood memories of a dozen village inhabitants, who grew up in post-war Britain, during the 1940s, 50s and 60s. It is a nostalgic view of a rural childhood where homemade games and bike rides led to outdoor adventures and a fair share of mischief.
Living near to the Great Central provided an exciting place to visit and the chance to see steam engines up close. From tales of the village Home Guard and celebrations of the Queen's Coronation, to changing the signals for the stationmaster, living in Mixbury offered the youngsters plenty to keep them interested and occupied.
A way of life which now remains only in memories.
