National Explosives Factory, Hayle – a photogallery

Hannah Wright, a photographer based in Truro, Cornwall, has taken a fantastic photogallery of the National Explosives Factory, Hayle, for Heart of Conflict. At its peak in World War One, the factory was one of the largest in the country and employed 1,800 people. Now all that remains are sand dunes, scarred with banks and bunkers.  Huts producing explosives were surrounded by banks to minimise the effect of an accidental explosion.
