The Lovers Gretna Green
some History of the place I found.
The village was notable for HM Factory, Gretna, codenamed Moorside, a huge cordite munitions factory built nearby on the shore of Solway Firth to supply ammunition to British forces during World War I. The factory, the biggest munitions factory ever built, stretched for nine miles from Eastriggs along the Solway coast as far as Longtown in England and two miles across. The factory took 10,000 navvies to build it, and employed 30,000 workers, mostly women. The workers mixed by hand a devilís porridge of nitroglycerin and gun-cotton into cordite paste, and loaded the extruded cordite strands into shell cases.

Now famous for marriage industry at Gretna Green, where, by some accounts, as many as one of every six Scottish weddings take place. Some marriages take place in Gretna itself, at the Register office in the centre of the township.
