Drive along the Hillfoots and you will see some of the last remnants of a once bustling centre of industry during the Great War.

There will always be war memorials; some well preserved, others in a desperate state of disrepair, and others maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

Sadly there are no local memorials or tributes for the men and women whose war effort and sacrifice included working long hours, often under harsh conditions to keep the armed forces fighting at the front supplied and clothed.
