Nobel House, Ardeer

A location at the head of the Ardeer Peninsula, Ardeer now part of Stevenston. It was the site of an explosives factory built by Noble of Ardeer in the 1870s, later operated by ICI. The South African Pavilion of the 1938 Glasgow Exhibition, Africa House, was moved to this site where it remains. The factory outgrew its originally buildings as the area became engulfed by nearby Stevenson.
