Thanks everyone for the kind words. The next week and a half are going to pass VERY slowly until I pick her up! First trip will to Worcester to take my Dad out for a spin (first time back in a Morgan for him since the early '60's).

The factory have asked me to pop in as well, but might wait until after Christmas for that.

Thank you - I've been round many times with Grandad - he retired in '75 but I used to go with him when he popped back to catch up with all his mates. They were always very keen to show off any 'new' technology or changes that they'd brought in - I was there shortly after they started using the FIAT engine, I can clearly remember the excitement when they purchased their first powdercoater, and I think there was also a change from treating the wooden frames by hand to some form of 'dip' tank smile smile

I think my last trip was about '86, I'd just passed my driving test and drove him over. Be interesting to see how much has changed (or not!) since then.....

Have they still got the stuffed owl in the roof of the main showroom?

No he's been moved - you will see him on your visit but I won't spoil the surprise for you.

You'll see a lot of changes since your last visit then smile
You will need to start in the visitor centre on Spring Lane, to the north side of the factory. Information is on the web site.

Just had a look on Google Earth - wow, a lot has changed. Even the big water tank at the bottom of the hill seems to have gone.

Congratulations on the 4-seater - I had one myself back in the 1980's. Enjoy your visit - I think you will find that much has changed since you were last there!

If you haven't done so already you might like to watch a programme Thames TV made about the Factory back in 1975.
