  • A very important collection of buildings and exhibits showing the industrial and social history of the gas industry from its beginnings to the present day.probably a unique museum of world importance.
  • What it lacks in size is more than made up by content. Not just the gas works but local history to.
  • Microcosm of industrial and social history. As it is complete gasworks on a small scale you can take in the whole process. It also illustrates the decline of skilled labouring job in our economy and there speed of decline. Children will love it.
