Morris Motors at 100
This autumn we're celebrating the centenary of Morris Motors, with a spotlight trail of collection items in the house and a special car event.
Please note this article is from 2019. Nuffield Place remains closed for now. Please check the front page of our website for the latest updates.
Take a whistle stop tour of Lord Nuffield’s career through key items in our collection on our spotlight trail in the house, on every day in the house until Sunday 3 November. Ask a member of the house team to point you in the right direction when you arrive.
Centenary car event
On 1 September, we said ‘Happy Birthday’ to Morris Motors Ltd, which is 100 this year. 70 historic cars parked outside the home of Lord Nuffield, ranging from the 1920's to present day, representing a timeline in the development of car technology and style. With a live band, pulled pork sandwiches and refreshing drinks, it was a day to remember.
Car club visits
Are you a car fan? We host regular car clubs here at Nuffield Place, a great opportunity to see some historic cars and speak to the owners. If you are part of a car club and would like to visit, we would love to hear from you.
