Full Description

Gas Works Building, Whittington. A house (now called Brooklands) and a small gatehouse are all that remain of the 1862 Whittington Gas Works. Two storey brick house, with decorated eaves and ornate 'corkscrew' design chimney. The ornate chimney is repeated on the small single storey brick gatehouse. (1) The Gas Works is shown on 1st ed. OS 25", and with the site extended on 2nd and 3rd eds. The mapping for this record is based on 3rd ed. OS 25", when the gas works was at its greatest extent and the house is shown for the first time. A visit in 2007 confirmed the existence of the house, now no. 130B Station Road, but the gatehouse was not seen. (2)
