Summary

MG was a home-grown concept that became an international success, bringing the small market town of Abingdon onto the global map. MG: Made in Abingdon recounts the inside story of the famous factory, recognising that the most important aspect of MG’s success was its team – the tea-boys and girls, the shop floor workers, the engineers and racers, the apprentices and management. From memories of the production line to recollections of racing incidents, the untold story of MG from the men and women who worked in the Abingdon factory is revealed for the first time in a book that is both nostalgic and historically important.

Author Biography

Having left school at the age of 15, Bob Frampton pursued a short career in the army before returning to civilian life and completing a degree in History at Durham University. Completing a second degree in Law he taught in further education for the predominance of his working life. Upon retiring Bob became an active volunteer at Abingdon County Hall Museum, Oxfordshire, where his research has uncovered much of Abingdon's unwritten history, and has resulted in the unique collection of personal stories that appear in MG, Made in Abingdon.
