Making Cars at Longbridge
Noch nicht erschienen
BeschreibungFor 99 years, cars were made at Longbridge. Less than a year off its century, the factory closed and 6,000 people lost their jobs. The first cars to roll off the production plant were Austins, and the site has been a center of car manufacturing ever since. From the original Austin 7 of the 1920s to Rovers and MGs, there is a rich history of Longbridge that has been offset by the the recent misfortune.
PortraitColin Corke is a lifelong car enthusiasts and is a Reverend in Longbridge. Gillian Bardsley works at the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust at Gaydon.
