Life on the farm at Nicholas Mee as we celebrated our 30th anniversary

Twenty twenty-three marks three decades since Nick went it alone after 15 years selling cars at the London HQ of Aston Martin Lagonda.

At the start it was from small premises in a Kensington mews, and then to a larger location, Brackenbury Garage in Hammersmith, West London. Showrooms in nearby Goldhawk Road were added in 2012 before the Nicholas Mee & Company moved in its entirety to a current two-acre location in Hertfordshire in 2018 at Essendonbury Farm in Hatfield.

The 20,000sq ft buildings at Essendonbury Farm feature state-of-the-art workshops situated in artfully repurposed historic buildings. Although in a beautiful rural setting, the site is minutes away from the motorway network and fast mainline trains to central London.

When we learned we had a neighbour in award-winning director and videographer Simon Friedberg, we hatched a plan to celebrate this important milestone in the company’s history. Why not give Simon unlimited access to the business over the last 12 months so he could record not just any year, but our 30th, in the form of a video? He had no specific brief; just to film what he thought was interesting and give outsiders a snapshot of working life at Essendonbury Farm from sales and service to restorations and recommissioning.

This is the result. We think it is a lovely testament to all the hard-working staff here, what they do and why they do it, something that truly celebrates our 30th, very special year in business and the cars so dear to all our hearts. We hope you do, too.

As always, feedback is welcome (post on the comments section on Youtube, under the video) – pour yourself a drink and enjoy Simon’s beautiful film about life on the farm at Nicholas Mee - A Legacy in Aston Martin.
