Should be very interesting.
I applied for a job there once.
Had an interview and was offered the job but turned it down---my gut feel was that the peoples feet were three feet off the ground---living in another world.
As it worked out I made the right decision (for once!).

To anyone that may be interested, 'From The Inside - BSA/Triumph's Umberslade Hall research establishment revealed', is now in stock and can be purchased over at www.bsa1971.com

During the research, I was lucky enough to have the help of several ex-Umbersladers, three of whom were particularly keen to share their experiences and answer multiple questions - as with 'BSA Motorcycles - the final evolution', all resulting quotes used are reproduced verbatim and not manipulated in anyway. The book also contains a large number of rare development/styling photos, many until now unpublished.

Chapters on the bikes that, by and large, emanated from the centre, vary in length simply due to how much information could be unearthed on each type, the always intriguing P30 being the longest by far, in part due to it being a totally new motorcycle. Other factors here were some very interesting documents provided by P30 owner Tony Page and the fact that one of the Umberslade guys was involved with the project.

Finally, for those who for many years (me included) had wondered exactly what type of work was carried out there, how much and what type of engineering equipment had been installed, how the buildings were used and what sort of folk were employed, 'From The Inside' at last provides many of the answers.

It's a great book and full of so much information and photo's, I have got many books on the later BSA's but nothing that as good as Brad's two books. What I found most surprising with this book is seeing all this new information, things that I have not seen anywhere else and helps to make it all much more interesting

Many thanks for this stunning piece of work Brad.
