    History
    Bridgend played an important part during the Second World War. It was home to a prisoner of war camp at Island Farm and a large munitions factory (ROF Bridgend — known as the "Admiralty") at Waterton, as well as a large underground munitions storage base at Brackla (known as the 8 xs). This was an overspill of the Royal Arsenal, Woolwich.

    Probably one of the last remaining buildings left in Bridgend Ind Estate from the 1940s, not to much to see but before it gets pulled down like everything else in Bridgend i thought it was worth documenting it

    Nobody seems to remember Pencoed Hostels, it is where workers from Bridgend bomb factories lived, it was my childhood playground, not much online about it apart from coflein
