Places: Gretna

Gretna has a unique place in Scotland’s story. Created to provide housing and a community for the workers at a unique First World War munitions factory, the streets and buildings of the town have come to form an important and lasting architectural legacy.

In 2010-11, Historic Environment Scotland worked with Dumfries & Galloway Council to review the buildings in Gretna which were associated with the building of the munitions factory in 1916-1918.

As a result of the project, one building was listed and 14 existing listed building records were updated and they now provide more information about why these buildings are so special. Three buildings were also delisted.
