SD4600 : Wild west

near to Rainford, St Helens, Great Britain

Wild west
Wild west
The 1940s map guarded our wartime security by showing nothing at this point. The modern map square is dominated by a set of buildings arranged in a pear-shape, and this building stands guard over its top end. I assume the buildings were stores for munitions turned out at the Ordnance Factory at Kirkby, a mile or so west of here.
