Part of the Northfield district
Longbridge is an area of Birmingham, England. For local government purposes it is a ward within the district of Northfield kings norton.
Since 1905, the area has been dominated by the Longbridge plant, which produced Austin, Nash Metropolitan, Morris, British Leyland, and most recently MG Rover cars. The factory became dormant, and some parts of the older sections of the site were demolished after MG Rover fell into administration in April 2005. The company, renamed MG Motor (owned by MG Rover’s would-be partner Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation) resumed full MG TF sports car production at the factory in August 2008 and in late 2010 started final assembly of the MG6.
