Club members had a escorted tour of the Oare gunpowder factory site where gunpowder had been produced for over 150 years prior to WWII. Volunteers gave an interested tour explaining what each building had been used for. The reason the buildings had thick walls and thin roofs so the explosion when things went wrong went straight up and the owners could re-roof and easily bring the building back into use.
