The Slimbridge Magazine Ordnance Depot – with Den Bannister @ The Berkeley Arms Hotel
Apr 18 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

The Slimbridge Magazine, one of the largest munitions stores in England, was critical to solving the shell shortage during WW1 Six and a half miles of light railway constructed in 1916 fed an extensive storage area which had all but disappeared by the early 1920s. Den Bannister will tell the story of the construction, operation and disassembly of the magazine with an extensive collection of maps and pictures.
