Recently I spent a couple of hours at Bell & Colvill in Surrey, who are an authorised seller of Morgan cars. I haven't seen any Morgan models close to for a few years so I was amazed at how fantastic looking these cars are. The width of the running boards are on some of the models needs to be seen.

If you are unable to get to the Morgan factory but are close to Bell & Colvill it's worth a visit as they also sell Lotus cars as well.

The Morgan factory tour is a fascinating experience. The CWF had an outing there in May '17- link to photos

Looks like a great day out, Jos! I'm no petrol head but Morgans are very exciting.

Glad you enjoyed your visit Jos.

I went on the forum visit a couple of years ago. Really enjoyable day and amazing to see the craftsmanship that goes into a Morgan; as opposed to being welded together by robots, as many cars are today.
