\abstract{The design of a neutrino factory based on a
muon storage ring draws upon several tried and
tested technologies, upon existing design work for
other accelerator projects, e.g. neutron spallation
sources, but it also depends on the development of
technical solutions to certain specific
requirements. These include the efficient capture
of muons in a large volume of phase space, some
reduction in overall phase space volume by
ionization cooling, fast acceleration to the
desired energy to avoid unacceptable decay losses
and storage in a decay ring optimised for its
purpose as a neutrino source. There is no obvious
single combination of machines to achieve this aim.
Here we present a scenario which relies to a large
extent upon known technologies together with a
relatively unambitious mix of new schemes. Some
will be tried and tested during design and
construction. Others during the early operational
phase of the facility leading to a staged upgrade
path -- a well-proven strategy in the development of
accelerator complexes.}
