    Default ROF Wrexham

    Fianlly got around going to this place at the weekend...

    The Royal Ordnance Factory operating throughout WWII, covering 1,400 acres'
    producing solventless cordite, which was an explosive propellant used in shells .
    Served by an extensive internal railway system branching from the former
    Cambrian railways line between Ellesmere and Wrexham.
    Numerous pill boxes and other defensive structures stand around the site.
    Closed in 1945, the buildings remain intact but derelict.
    Post war, the site was adapted for re-use as Wrexham Industrial Estate.

About us
DerelictPlaces is a forum for people with an interest in the history and documentation of disused, derelict and abandoned buildings to come together and share their experiences, photography and historical findings. Our military, industrial and historical heritage is fast disappearing under the pressure of regeneration, the need for new housing, and often through simple neglect; Our aim is to document these places before they disappear entirely.
