Gunpowder magazine at Holyhead
Gunpowder magazine at Holyhead
This is the smaller of two magazine buildings between the old quarries and the breakwater at Holyhead. Gunpowder for the fog warning cannon on North Stack was stored here. Thick walls with a relatively thin roof ensured that if there were an explosion, the force would mainly be directed upwards and away from any workers.
