I've a feeling it was Newport, where they now make Raspberry Pi.

Chris says:
The early BBC Micros were built by a number of different suppliers including AB Electronics, Cleartone and ICL. These can be seen on the early serial numbers.
A different Chris said:
There are four production lines making products for us in the U.K.: ICL at Kidsgrove; Race Electronics and AB Electronics in South Wales; and RH Electronics in Cambridge
An early press report said:
One factor helping this is the addition of another, Hong Kong based sub-contractor to produce the machines. Though primarily for the Far East market, the early production from Hong Kong will come to the UK to help redress the balance. A further two, as yet unnamed sub contractors could also be appointed in the UK.
(This ought to be a new thread really)

I expect I could answer that by (once again) ploughing through the boxes of BBC Micro Progress Meeting minutes that I have stashed in the loft - I recollect that numbers of machines manufactured by the various factories were a regular item in those minutes. But it seems that the answer has already been provided, so hopefully I don't need to.
