Narrow Gauge Railway, Royal Gunpowder Mills, Waltham Abbey
One of the old buildings at the Royal Gunpowder Mills has the remains of the narrow gauge railway that was used to transport the powder.
Royal Gunpowder Mills
The Royal Gunpowder Mills are set in 170 acres of Alder woodland and this part of the site was referred to as the island due to the network of canals. Much of the water network is man-made, feeding off the River Lea. Water was crucial both to the manufacturing process and the transport of explosives.
