One hundred years ago an explosion rocked Lancashire. The munitions depot at White Lund in Morecambe exploded with a force that could be heard as far away as Burnley. Due to the secretive nature of the factory, press reports were suppressed at the time and the incident was buried in all but the memories of the people involved.

Blasted is a project commemorating the centenary of the event. It reveals and preserves the story by drawing parallels between the women workers of the depot and their modern counterparts through performance and film.


A Friends of the City Museum project.
Made by artists Adam Gregory and Gillian Lees, working with local women and school children.
