Morris Motors

Lord Nuffield and Morris cars in Oxford

William Morris, later Lord Nuffield, had a profound effect on Oxford, turning it into a significant manufacturing centre and making major benefactions to health and to education. He assembled his first car, the Bullnose Morris, in 1912 at his garage in Longwall Street. On this walk we will visit this and some of the other city-centre sites associated with one of Oxford’s most famous sons – buildings in which Morris repaired, made and sold bicycles, motorcycles and cars, and institutions which benefited from his incredible generosity.
