Sooo after many a thread on here, I got my thumb out and went for a look, only to end up at the Jaguar plant, the other end of Brum!! nutter!!

Anyway, after getting my bearings, I finally found Longbridge and was amazed by the size of it, and I think I have covered just a small amount of it.

I quickly darted into the driving entrance/exit and found myself being the only one in this strange environment, a production line, lights, machinery, computers, still switched on, waiting...waiting.

I lost time in here, from 12pm-5.30pm gone so quickly.

6. This Silver MG TF was the main reason my images went global, it was a concept car no-one had seen before!

Re: Rover MG, Longbridge, 18/02/07 - REPORT (56K Warning)

25. Some areas I thought I could here workers/security so sometimes I would not use my torch.

32. I think this was a mock-up TF line for the Chinese...

33. I didn't venture further than this as I heard noises and didn't want to be seen...

34. These cars were used for catalogues, their roofs cut off so the camera could access better angles.

Right, at this point it was 4.30pm and I was up for going home, while walking back I saw some steps going up towards the inside of the roof, so I thought fuck it and went up.

To my surprise I found the store of all the unused chassis, HUNDREDS of them, sardined together in a warm climate controlled area. I had to delete some pics on my card as I became snappy happy
