Oxford Instruments, Yatton
This is the northern entrance from the B3133 (here named North End) to the Oxford Instruments site, one of 25 offices and factories in Europe, USA, China and Japan. The company, which has about 1,250 employees worldwide, supplies high-tech instruments and systems.

As the first commercial spinoff company from Oxford University, Oxford Instruments developed the world's first superconducting magnet in 1959. This led to the development of MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) instrumentation, which was a great advance in medical diagnostics. There are now over 30,000 MRI systems in the world, a third of which have been supplied by Oxford Instruments.
