Powdermills: The Story of the Dartmoor Gunpowder Factory
Out of stock
In a remote spot in the middle of Dartmoor can be found the extensive ruins of a gunpowder factory. Operating from 1845 to around 1897, it has lain abandoned for more than 120 years. But who owned the factory? Who lived and worked there, and in what conditions? Was it ever profitable? Why did production stop? Drew Campbell answers these questions, and many more.
