Since the closure of the MG factory in 1980, evidence that MGs were built in Abingdon has been disappearing, and today practically nothing remains. Ex-MG employee Brian Moylan decided that something had to be done to prevent MG’s time at Abingdon from being forgotten.
On Saturday 26th May 2007, Brian’s campaign bore fruit, with the opening of a room within the town’s museum, dedicated to the memory of the MG factory. The Museum is housed in the Abingdon County Hall Museum, located in the market square in the centre of the town, which dates back to 1678.
The Abingdon Museum is open 10am-4pm Tuesday to Saturday and Bank Holidays (closed over Christmas and New Year). Entry is free. Click here to visit the Abingdon County Hall Museum website.
