The Royal Ordnance Factory, situated on Manston Lane, made guns and later tanks during the Second World War. It was built about half a mile from the site of the World War One Barnbow shell filling factory where three fatal explosions occurred. The WW2 factory eventually became part of the Vickers group, manufacturing the Challenger Tank. It is now closed.
