Description: If Hitler's audacious invasion plans had meant fetching up at Moss-bay, his Wehrmacht shock-troops would have been in for a nasty set-back. Anti-tank blocks - ingeniously cast in ladles from a mixture of slag and iron - stretched from the works of the Workington Iron and Steel Company at Moss-Bay, all the way to Harrington. This regimentally aligned barrier of 'skulls', of which they were to become known, was at shore-level, a prelude only to the impenetrable railway embankment which lay behind. The invaders would be channelled towards Harrington, fighting their way up between the harbour and the steep banks of Salterbeck.
