It’s good to have photos and keep a record but am I the only one that simply does not understand or get the significance of these gas holders? I personally find them somewhat of an eye-sore and believe the land could be put to much better use… I just don’t get it .

Apologies if that offends anyone. Not my intention… I’m genuinely curious as to why this seems such a big deal…


Hi @jonnoprice, the gasholders have certainly split opinion. There’s a good debate on this subject, which includes a poll: Bell Green Gas Holder Demolition, 7th January 2019 (I’d encourage the debate to continue on that topic, as opposed to here on the “memorial” topic).


Too right - and totally understood!


Lovely photos as always, @JamesEvans
