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 has been decommissioned. Outline Planning Permission for redevelopment has been obtained, alongside a S106 Agreement to secure protective and investigatory works for the gasholder. These will inform its future restoration and re-use on the site. The developer, Local Authority and Historic England are liaising closely to agree suitable approaches to this complex site.
