I worked in a bike shop in Hull in the 70's so a little after the time your bike was made. Cliff Pratt made frames in Hull but can't think of anyone else off the top of my head. Any pics?

Ok - don't know anything really except I think they were in the old town: Bowlalley Lane, NR Princes Dock & Ye Olde White Hart Pub...
Don't know when they ceased to exist, but there was a relatively modern one (70's anyway) being sold on eBay by a Hull shop called East Coast Cycles.
I think I remember Cliff Pratt - it's many years since I've been to Hull but I think my second bike (a Puch handed down from my older brother & then later to my younger brother) was originally bought there... I'm not aware of any connection to Magna.
