001 – Dial Square and The Royal Arsenal

Where else to start?

Firstly, I am sure you’ve all heard of Dial Square where many of the founders worked, well this is the sundial over the entrance to Dial Square that gave it it’s name.

You can see another picture from a wider angle on the Royal Arsenal website here: http://www.royalarsenalwoolwich.org.uk/DialSq.jpeg

The Royal Arsenal at Woolwich was one of the three main Royal Arsenal’s of the time and was a sprawling mass of factories and laboratories.  Below are pictures of the Bullet Factory and the ‘Big Hammer’ at Woolwich.
