Site of the Fauld Explosion near Hanbury, Staffs.
No photograph can do justice to the size of the crater left after this explosion in 1944 which took the lives of 70 people. It occurred in an underground ammunition store and was at the time the biggest non-nuclear man made explosion ever. LinkExternal link
