Oxford Archaeology was commissioned by Montagu Evans LLP on behalf of National Grid
to create an historic building record of the surviving structures at the former gasworks at
Partington, Manchester, during the dismantling of the two gasholders at the site. This
forms part of a national programme of recording these distinctive structures which have
formed familiar landmarks in towns and cities throughout much of the 19th and 20th
centuries. The archive record that is being produced will allow comparison between
different sites. The project has also included research on the history of the site.
The two gasholders were both 20th century in date; one constructed between 1952 and
1954, and the other between 1965 and 1969. They were each spiral guided, above
ground gasholders.
