Information

The explosives storage facility built by the Air Ministry at Rhiwlas was a sub unit of 31 Maintenance Unit Llanberis. The site, covering an area of approximately 60 hectares, comprised 25 timber-framed Laing huts. Following the collapse of part of the underground bomb store at Llanberis, 7,000 tons of explosives were re-located to the Rhiwlas depot in 1942. The site closed in 1953.
