Our Salisbury gas holder is considered a local landmark with a history pre-dating the Second World War.
SGN wrote to 500 residents in Salisbury who were directly impacted by our decommissioning work. The letter included an invitation to a drop-in session, and we had over 100 attendees including the Mayor and local councillors. It was an excellent opportunity for us to hear the views of local people.
We’ve helped Fisherton History Society to capture local stories about gas works, and we’re also contributing material to a new exhibition within Salisbury Museum that will include the original gas holder plaque, a time-lapse video of the gas holder being dismantled, and an exhibition board.
