' Railway line to the Royal Ordnance Factory No. 7 Kirkby, 1940-46. This is described as a filling factory (i.e. filling munitions) that employed 20,000 employees. In 1946 it was purchased by Liverpool City Council and converted to a Trading Estate - The Knowsley Trading Estate. The 1955-56 OS map still shows the railway connection and many of the array of small buildings surrounded by blast embankments of the old munitions factory, although some parts are clearly 'converted' to civilian use. Today it is a concentration of most large modern factory/warehouse buildings. '
