Morgan Factory

Words & photos - Daniel Bevis

Here's something to add to your petrolhead to-do list: got to Malvern and take Morgan's factory tour. It's a fascinating place, dripping with history, and you'll come away with a deep yearning for a Morgan in your life! The entire build process is a multi-sensory adventure, from the rich aroma of the wood shop to the clank-clank of the bodyshop, the serenity of the paint booths to the camaraderie of the interior trimmers.
You'll be pleased to discover, as you amble around with a fairly free reign, that everybody knows everybody else and there's a wonderful ambience of cheeriness, while the keenly observed traditional methods of construction are neatly fused with up-to-the-minute tech. Seeing these uniquely British machines come to life is truly a marvel to behold.

SuckSqueezeBangBlow was there with an ulterior motive - driving a 3-wheeler and a Plus Eight. More on those coming soon! But in the meantime, click here for some more Morgan snaps.
