This was my first proper explore back in 2011 we have done a number of them here as it only down the road. My great grandma worked here during the war its well worth a look round there are many buildings on the site, we have always just called it the factory only downside is that your are very close to a prison but we have spent a lot of time of here to be honest when we first took a look at the place

history on Featherstone filling factory number 17

During world war 11 factory number 17 did its bit for war effort by providing filling shells and bombs very high explosives between 1940 an 1945. Since then it as been owned by BAE who sold some of it to HMP.

Might I add that a lot of people around by me all have there own stories an memories of there mothers, grandmas and great grandmas working here handling some of harsh explosives they reckon there is uranium present still on site

Anyway here some of my pictures must say there not the best most of them are from inside the building as it was dark

Not too bad, perhaps a visit in the day would be better for pictures!

Your Grandma got any old photos?
