Photos from Explosives Factory tour on Upton Towans, Hayle

Very many thanks to Gwen Pooley of Phillack Church, who took these lovely photos of the walk over the site of the National Explosives Factory, Upton Towans, Hayle. Local expert Peter Channon led this walk at the end of last month. Two young women were blown up at this factory in December 1916. Peter's walk - and talk earlier in the month - threw a spotlight on this forgotten history.  More about this, and our other work marking the centenary of World War One, here.
