Royal Ordnance Factory Featherstone was a WW2 filling factory which made bombs, shells ect.
It was then ROSM (Royal Ordnance Special Metals) Featherstone which made toughened bullets from depleted uranium. It closed back in the late 1980s . Half the site has been bulldozed ready for the construction of a new prison to stand alongside the existing one.
There is loads still standing though and the site is massive. The main production areas have strange machines scattered through them and some of the WW2 stuff is great.
Maybe someone can tell me what the last images with the writing on the wall and numbers mean ?
