Nuffield Place

Last Friday, on the way to the Fine Arts Trade Guild workshops in Stratford upon Avon, we stopped at Nuffield Place (
https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/nuffield-place ), Oxfordshire. Some photos from the visit can be found at https://adobe.ly/2w9G5W4 .

Lord Nuffield established the Morris Motor Company (e.g. Morris Minor) in Cowley, Oxfordshire. Although he became rich, he and his wife seem to have lived in modest circumstances. He seemed to be very benevolent and among his generous gifts he supplied iron lungs (for polio victims etc). He was responsible to establishing Nuffield Clinics and Hospitals.
