Rolls-Royce at Derby

Malcolm Bobbitt

Since 1908 the names of Derby and Rolls-Royce have been synonymous. It was in that year that the company, formed in 1904, moved from Manchester to Nightingale Road. For almost a century, Rolls-Royce has played a vital role in the working life of this Midlands city. Malcolm Bobbitt's illustrated history of the company's Derby factories offers a behind-the-scenes insight into the extraordinary engineering achievements that have earned for Rolls-Royce a worldwide reputation for innovation and excellence. His book charts the varying fortunes of the company as well as examining the role of the local people who for generations made the R-R marque a world leader.
