Ox­ford ed­u­ca­tion

Auto Car (UK) - - INSIGHT -

In your fea­ture on the UK mo­tor in­dus­try (‘Au­to­car’s Round Bri­tain Whiz Vol. 2’, 27 Septem­ber), you men­tioned that the BMW Mini fac­tory dates back to 1913. I’m afraid that’s not the case, as the Mini plant is on the Pressed Steel site on the south side of the Ox­ford by­pass, not the Mor­ris Mo­tors site that used to be across the road. Pressed Steel dates back only to 1926 and I know this be­cause I started my in­dus­trial ca­reer there in 1961. Kit Spack­man Lyd­ney, Glouces­ter­shire
