Morris garage, Longwall Street
This building started life in 1910 as the Morris Cycle Works, where William Morris (1877-1963) who had been apprenticed to a bicycle seller at the age of 15, moved on to working with motorcycles and then cars. His operation soon outgrew the premises and he started making the Bullnose Morris at a factory in Cowley. This was the start of a huge car manufacturing empire. He was made Viscount Nuffield in 1938 and became a major benefactor to Oxford.
