Lord Austin’s Office Moved to Gaydon

Another piece of history has been removed from what was once the largest car manufacturer in Britain.

It seems that without very much in the way of consultation with groups interested in preserving the history of Austin at what is left of the Longbridge site, Lord Austin’s office, which up to now had been preserved at the site, has been unexpectedly moved to the British Motor Museum at Gaydon.

This has provoked a degree of controversy – as you can see in this article in the local newspaper here.
