Not long ago, Mr LOL and I found a public foot path
that goes from Coombe Country Park, across
a field, to somewhere I have yet to explore.
Walking up the path you will see landscape
like the photos above and below.
What is amazing (to me) is that the 200 acre
Rolls-Royce plant is just beyond the farm
to my left. They make engines not cars here.
I mention this simply because I want to document
something of Rolls-Royce and Armstrong Siddeley Motors
whilst the Ansty plant is still open.
Rolls-Royce has a number of plants in the UK.
In the 1940's and 50's Armstrong Siddeley Motors
had its development plant here.
For one reason or another the workforce
and future of this plant is uncertain.
On Sunday we drove past the main gate.
Rolls-Royce, Ansty, is still open
but for how long, I don't know.
