SECOND WORLD WAR
In 1939, war broke out across Europe and, 2 years later, construction started on Lathalmond Royal Naval Stores & Transit Depot.
Built as duplicate stores for Rosyth Dockyard, the idea was that if the Dockyard suffered any damage during an air raid, it could be quickly restocked by rail from Lathalmond.
Our Captured in Time Exhibition features a vast collection of photographs taken prior to, and during construction of the site. This is on display at Lathalmond Wartime.
The tramway from Lathalmond quarry and its siding seems to have been out of use by this time.
