History: Longtown munitions depots lies immediately to the southwest of the town of Longtown. Eastriggs is a nearby facility to the West which falls under it's overall control.
The town of Longtown actually lies in England, but belongs in Scotland because it marked the eastern extent of the largest munitions factory in the world, HM Factory, Gretna, constructed during World War I.
The Longtown depot is supplemented by a further facility at Eastriggs some 7 miles to the west, which is used to hold munitions for all three armed services, in support of routine training, major exercises, and operations at home and overseas. Together with the usual road access links, the depots have rail access directly from the main west coast London to Glasgow railway line.
Eastriggs has a narrow gauge railway system and transfer sheds between mainline wagons and it?s own internal Narroa Gauge railway system.
