Visit to Nuffield Place 19th June

As a follow-up to the talk by Simon Wenham on 23rd January 2018 : "Morris’ Motopolis: the Motor Works and Transformation of Oxford”, the Society is arranging a visit to Nuffield Place, the former home of Lord Nuffield, Founder of the Morris Motor Company, and now a National Trust property on Tuesday 19th June 2018 (NB Date changed).


Lord and Lady Nuffield’s home and personal possessions are just as they left them, the decor and furnishings intact.  From the comfortable sitting room with a small black and white TV, to Lord Nuffield's humble bedroom with a secret built-in workshop, this intimate home exudes the tastes and interests of its remarkable owner.

Entry to Nuffield Place is free for National Trust members and the Society will pay for SCLHS members who are not National Trust members.  

Meet at Nuffield Place at about 10.15 am.  Transport from Sutton Courtenay (for those requiring it) to be arranged on car-sharing basis.  Sign up at AGM on Thursday 10th May.
