I popped down a couple of weeks ago without my camera and decided to pop back down (Technically I'm on 1 - 10 so this is a dinner hour visit)

The famous service tunnel/bridge (pictured), used to carry vehicle bodyshells across the Bristol Road, was demolished on the night of 4 August 2006. Other parts of the huge MG Rover factories on the site were demolished during that night and later in 2006 and the land to be used for future redevelopment. At the moment much of the original site still lies unused awaiting development. Less than half of the original Longbridge site has been retained for carmaking.
The entry is starting to get a bit dodgy, someone has gone through one of the bottom steps and one of the steps higher up started to crumble below my foot which doesn't feel to good when you're alone.

The plant and tunnels was used during WW2 to build plane engines
