With unfinished cars left to rust on the production line and paperwork lying scattered in the empty shell of the factory, these eerie photographs show a famous MG Rover plant where time has stalled.
Production at the Longbridge plant in Birmingham was massively scaled back after MG Rover collapsed in 2005 – meaning that the factory has been almost entirely unused over the past decade.
The owners of MG Motor confirmed last week that the West Midlands factory has completely stopped assembling cars after almost a century of on-off production.
Haunting images show how the derelict site has been deserted, with body shells of the Rover 75 left abandoned and personal items gathering dust in the empty offices.
The images are a sharp contrast to the bustling pictures from the factory’s hey-day in the 1980s when the plant employed 25,000 workers.
