Number 2 Gasholder, Fulham Gas Works, Sands End Lane SW6 - Hammersmith and Fulham

Gasholder dating from 1830, and considered to be the oldest surviving gasholder in the world. It consists of a single lift wrought iron holder, guided by cast iron 'A' frames with circle decoration. The wider Gas Works site is being decommissioned and an application has been made for Planning Permission for redevelopment. Investigatory works are required into the condition of the gasholder which will inform its future restoration and re-use on the site. Discussions have commenced between the developer, the Local Authority and Historic England.
