• Capturing history with the community

    As a visual reminder of our industrial past, gas holders are an important part of local community history. We have a duty to make sure their story isn’t lost, and it’s important we celebrate their existence for future generations to appreciate.

    To make sure this happens, we collaborate with local interest societies and community groups to find ways of capturing and sharing their unique story. We work closely with Historic England and Historic Environment Scotland to review, record and manage the gas holders’ heritage. We’ve taken time-lapse videos when the iconic gas holders have been dismantled and share these with local museums and community groups.
