Large magazine at Holyhead
Large magazine at Holyhead
Situated close to what is now the Breakwater Country Park, this magazine was for the storage of explosives used at the former quartzite quarry. As with its smaller neighbour, it was constructed with immensely thick walls, but with a relatively thin roof in case of accidental explosions, which would be directed upwards rather than outwards.
