Site visit today with work, customer of mine doing a lot of work here at the moment. What’s left of it anyway. There’s so many hidden gems still here. Could walk around this place all day. Old models and prototypes hidden away at the backs of rooms. Crazy to see.

Anyone live close to Longbridge? I’m about 15 mins away.

I live over the road xD

Can see it from my bedroom window!!

They've got some cracking cars in there still!!

If you drive past the Longbridge Village there's a fibre glass shell on the wall too!

It’s pretty cool, was in the old museum bit the other month, lots of cool cars and some very desirable minis just sat doing nothing. Seems such a shame they don’t even get seen these days.

I'm about ten minutes up the road. Is the museum part open? i'd love to have a look around the place.

Don’t believe so, from memory there was three minis in there. One was like a prototype with massaging seats 😂 there is the 1 millionth rover 75 too.

It’s weird some of the sections literally haven’t been touched since the production closed like I found an employee of the mo th trophy from 1992 😂

They have open days for the museum very occasionally, and it's not very well broadcast!

They have a twin-cam Mini, a couple of early cooper s' and John Cooper built Mini "Limousine" bit longer and more luxurious inside!
