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.​
