the Devil’s Porridge Museum
Discover the remarkable story of the ‘Greatest Munitions Factory on Earth’ and the extraordinary lives of the Munitions Girls who worked there at The Devil’s Porridge Museum! The Museum commemorates HM Factory Gretna, the nine-mile-long factory where 30,000 workers ‘did their bit’ during the First World War.
Learn about the lives of the Border people throughout the Second World War in the Solway Military Coast display. From Evacuees and Dr Barnardo’s Boys staying locally, to the Gretna Bombing and the MOD munitions depot, via RAF Annan and the first nuclear power station in Scotland bringing the museum into the Cold War era. Using artefacts, information panels, film and audio, photographs and oral histories the fascinating history of this Border area is brought to life!
