Body panels for these vehicles were pressed here - https://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/862465 The site is now used by Swindon Pressings Ltd., which is owned by BMW. They make body parts for the Mini, which are then sent to the plant in Oxford for assembly. Swindon is unusual in that it has two major car manufacturers, BMW and Honda.
