The former stone mine/ammo dump at Monkton Farleigh was a vast series of tunnels which during the war stored some several millions of tons of explosives.

About half of the site had a cable-hauled railway while the other half used conveyor belts. During the mid 80s it was open to the public for a while, which gave a chance to have a look around!
