The area that we know today as Birchwood was largely created from the demolition of the former Royal Ordnance Factory at Risley. Some remnants of the factory survived and still exist today, although they are becoming scarcer as the local area continues to develop.
Whilst there is information about the factory throughout my Birchwood pages, this section looks specifically at the former factory and places it into a national context.
