A PLAQUE has been unveiled to mark the site where many ingenious devices used in resistance fighting during World War II were made.

Aston House, in Aston, was the design and production site for the Special Operations Executive (SOE) - now known as MI6 - and devices made there included the pencil fuse, limpet mines, tree spigots and time delay fuses.

Aston House was demolished several years ago to make way for houses and Stevenage Golf and Conference Centre.

The commemorative plaque is on display in the clubhouse, which is within the original boundary of the SOE site.
