In the spring of 2011 Nik Stanbridge put on an exhibition for the Bampton Community Archive of Pill Boxes in this area during WWII. Simon Rae wrote a play about life revolving around one pill box and it was given its first airing in the Village Hall to coincide with the exhibition.
It was a delightful play and the scenery was excellent.

These two pictures were taken at the end of the party of the Bampton Traditional Morris Men when the dancers did a couple of Morris dances. Some in the photos include Billy Main, Jasper Walsh, Toby Perry, Andrew Lloyd, Tony Daniels, John Shuker and Reg Hall.
