The factory was one of the most important in the country during World War One. Before the conflict, it had produced explosives for the mining industry, but switched to military production after 1914. To view a photogallery of the site (which covers many acres of sand dunes), click here.
Peter will give a talk with background to the factory at 7pm on Thursday 14 June 2018 at Phillack Church Hall - then lead a walk around the dunes on 27 June 2018.
