Talk: The History of the Royal Ordnance Factory Poole 1940-1958 - BNSS

Event date: 9th September 2023 at: 2.30pm (in-house and zoom)

Speaker: David Warhurst

Although the ROF manufactured aircraft guns during and after the War until closure in 1958, and was a large employer in Poole, it seems that few people really knew what was produced during this period. The presentation gives a fascinating insight to the people’s lives and the work that was carried out at the Creekmoor factory. It includes details on the war time defences of the site, and details of the buildings and the transport system serving the factory.
