Camphill Milton Keynes is rather unique among Camphill Communities for its urban setting. Most of the early Camphill communities were built on farmland or country estates and usually quite remote. CMKC was an attempt to create a community within a more urban environment where residents could seek out outside work opportunities and have access to urban amenities.
On International Women’s Day we celebrate Morwenna Bucknall, one of the founders of Camphill MK Communities. Here’s a film, created by Jeremy Cooper, featuring the many people whose lives she’d touched, in her lifelong quest in helping others. We would like to thank everyone who contributed to this film, your memories were invaluable in the making of this project.

Thomas Weihs was a Doctor who fled Austria in the 30s after being pursued as a Jew (despite being a protestant!). In the late 30s, he moved to Scotland where he first worked alongside fellow refugee Karl Koenig and the other founders of the first Camphill school. Thomas had only just managed to escape Vienna on the last boat into Switzerland.
