The ordnance works. By 1939 the ordnance works had been purchased from the English Electric Co. Ltd by the Admiralty and in 1939 became the Royal Naval Stores Depot. The depot was closed in 1967. (Source: Industrial Locomotives of West Midlands Handbook. Industrial Railway Society.)

Because of the occupation of the Ordnance Works by the Admiralty from 1938 this area suffered badly from the bombing
