re: (A) are clustered in (B)
I have a question about the following sentences from a novel.
Stark Road, aptly named, led us toward the test facilities, which were some ten miles from
the living area on base. The Ditto diner was on the way, and we stopped long enough for coffee and
egg sandwiches. Then it was on to the test facilities, which were clustered in large, modern buildings
behind a fence topped with razor wire.
(Unnatural Exposure by P. Cornwell)
question: about "were clustered in"
I understand this phrase like the following:
Test facilities were in large, modern buidlings, and those buildings stood in clusters.
Is this right?
Additionally, I'm not sure about the usage of "on to" in "it was on to the test facilities".
I guess that it means "we then moved to the test facilities".
