The Secret War Factory: Cowbridge Confidential
This book is a story about ordinary people in extraordinary times and how 1,000 people came to a small country town to work at a factory where they made secret equipmen
t which was vital, and helped to win the war.Very few of these people voluntarily worked at the factory. It was wartime and many regulations were in force controlling labour and where people worked. I was a victim of these regulations as I had completed my education but could not follow my chosen career but was directed to work in this country factory.Where did these people who had been directed to work at the factory live? Some large Country Houses had been converted to hostels which accommated some, but the majority were billeted in houses in the town. A Billeting Officer visited every household and where room was available, then that household had to accommodate one or maybe two workers. Not all liked this idea!Many hundreds of workers were directed to this small town with no social amen
ities, to work in a factory doing work not of their choosing and many living in accommodation where they were not wanted. Imagine this happening today!Most of my readers have the good fortune never to have been in a war, because we have had in this country the longest unbroken peace since Worl War 2 ended.Now because the way we work has changed so dramatically in the last 20 years, most of my readers will not have worked in a factory - an office or a call centre is much more likely. For these readers, I have tried to explain what war meant to ordinary people in 1940, and what life working in this factory was all about.
The Drive, Cowbridge, is the third of only four residential developmen
ts by architects Hird and Brooks of Penarth. The Drive is the larger sister developmen
t to the award-winning development in Dinas Powis, 'The Mount'.
Consisting of some ten single-storey houses, each sited in its own large plot. Facing South-West, and each having magnificent views over the wider countryside.
Largely retaining most of its original features, each house still reflects the strong Scandinavian architectural features typical of Hird and Brooks, and as such is possibly the most significant of all four of the developments.
