Royal Ordnance Factory Bishopton and Nobel Explosives factory at Ardeer

A link in the Scotsman Newspaper took me to a site with a lot of photographs relating to the old Royal Ordnance factory at Bishopton  near Glasgow. Further links on the site showed many photos from the old Nobel explosives factory at Ardeer. 

The photographs and site appear to belong to a Ben Cooper who has published a book about these sites which is shown at this link   http://catchingphotons.co.uk/blog/book/ 

As the site is slightly confusing to get the pictures in the correct order I have listed the URLs for the parts.

It is also worth looking at Wikipedia for more on the ROF Bishopton
