Inspiration

Our inspiration behind this location is a personal one as our horse is based here 💕...however, here's the history:
During the 1930s, there was a recognition of a need to provide secure storage for munitions within the United Kingdom. The
proposal was to create three Central Ammunition Depots (CADs) in easily-hewn and relatively horizontal rocks: one in the south
(Monkton Farleigh); one in the north of England (Longtown, Cumbria); and one in the Midlands. While Monkton Farleigh came
into operations in 1939, CAD Nesscliffe was only opened by the War Office in 1941. In order to service the extensive property, the
War Office took over the virtually defunct Shropshire and Montgomeryshire Railway and built extensive additional service tracks
along the 8¾ miles of railway line from Maesbrook to the former Ford and Crossgate railway station. Like a typical ammunition
depot, the site was laid out over an extensive area to avoid total destruction should an accidental explosion occur, or the site be
attacked by enemy. The depot was made up of five separate sites at :-
Kinnerley (SJ354192)
Pentre (SJ374170)
Ford (SJ408139)
Argoed (SJ327217)
Loton Park (SJ357137)
The first four sites were capable of storing around 55,000 tons of shells. Loton Park was used for storage of both incendiary
ammunition and chemical weapons shells from 1943. This was one of only two Chemical Warfare depots operated in co-operation
with and guarded by the United States Army Air Force, specifically 7th US Chemical Depot Company. Locomotives and train drivers
were provided by the Royal Engineers, who also maintained the extensive network. Their main servicing depot for rolling stock
was on the stub-junction of the former branchline to Criggion. Ammunition storage on site officially stopped in 1959 and the
ammunition depot closed in 1961. Since this time, the area has been used as a training area adjacent to Nesscliffe Army Camp.
The latter has a capacity of 530 personnel.

Safety

Never leave a burning candle unattended. Burn candles out of reach of children and pets. Always leave about 10cm between burning candles. Do not burn candles on or near anything that may catch fire. Only burn this candle on a level, heat-resistant surface. 

Never burn this candle for more than 4 hours at a time. Do not allow the flame to touch the glass. On the first burn, always burn for 3-4 hours to ensure an even melt pool. Ensure the wick is upright, above the wax, and central before the wax sets. Always trim the wick to 5mm before lighting to avoid smoking and damage to the glass. Glass may become hot during use. Extinguish when 5mm of wax remains and do not relight.
