Ford Transition Exhibition

Planes, helicopters and the iconic Transit van – one small site in Southampton produced them all.

Now the factory is gone, and in its place, vast, high-tech warehouses prepare goods for shipping all over the world. Come and explore the epic history of the site told through the voices of people who worked there. Experience the sites and stories of a bygone age of manufacturing.

The exhibition features films and panels made in 2018 as part of the Heritage Lottery funded project: Transition: from Fields to Ford and Beyond. It was produced by Now Heritage CIC, Cosmic Carrot and oral historian Padmini Broomfield, with a team of talented community volunteers.
