The deadly haul was enough to kill 100 people.
The devices were destroyed last week by the British Counter IED team and Gurkhas and included over 60 detonators and mines.
It has also been revealed that last week British troops discovered a massive bomb-making factory in Helmand, where 34 IEDs were being produced.
The factory was uncovered after the Brigade Reconnaissance Force mounted an operation with soldiers from the Afghan National Army's 3 Kandak brigade.
Brits blow up Taliban haul that could kill 100
Blast ... smoke fills the air as explosives are obliterated by British

Fearsome British Army Gurkhas helped to destroy Taliban explosives
THIS is the moment when British troops destroyed enough Taliban bombs to kill 100 of our heroes.
More than 800kg of explosives were obliterated in the controlled blast in the Afghanistan desert - and blew evil insurgents' hopes of mass-slaughter to smithereens.
The devices, destroyed last week by the British Counter IED team and Gurkhas, included over 60 detonators and mines.
The Sun can also reveal our heroes last week uncovered a massive hidden bomb-making factory in Helmand - where 34 IEDs were being produced.
The chilling find in the Zumbalay area of Nahr-e Saraj North, was described by one source as a "stepping up" of the Taliban's killing campaign.
The factory was uncovered - and four suspected bomb-makers detained - after the Brigade Reconnaissance Force mounted an operation with soldiers from the Afghan National Army's 3 Kandak brigade.
Haul ... weapons found at the bomb factory
Their deadly find included 34 pressure plates to make IEDs, a suicide vest rig, rocket-propelled grenade and detonation cord. Sgt John Phillips, of the Royal Marines, said: "We didn't expect to find so many IED components and weapons. It's a great result and a great feeling for all the lads involved."
But the successes were last night marred by tragedy as it was revealed a British soldier had been killed by a Taliban bomb.
Lethal ... materials used for making bombs
The hero, from 1st Battalion, The Rifles, was in the Saidabad Kalay area of Nahr-e Saraj District as part of a foot patrol deployed to meet and talk to local people. A roadside bomb yesterday killed ten workers in southern Afghanistan.
