I heard it was Banbury for the design centre, which is close to Silverstone and Brackley where the F1 industry is based.

those BSA Meteor air rifles were excellent ..........i had a .22 caliber one .......seriously powerful for a 10 year old ...ok some modern air guns are pretty lethal but for an old break action it was a damm fine gun....it could go straight through 10mm ply wood at close range

"He said he wanted to continue the “quirky English charm” of the original BSA company. "
Does that mean that they'll still leave a spot on the driveway under what used to be the chain oiler? laughing
