Oxford Archaeology was commissioned by Montagu Evans LLP on behalf of National Grid
to create an historic building record of two surviving gasholders at the former gasworks at
Dawes Lane, Scunthorpe, before and during the dismantling of the structures.
Gasholders 1 and 2 were above-ground spiral-guided gasholders; Gasholder 1 was
constructed in 1922, although the two lifts were replaced in 1958, Gasholder 2 was built
with three lifts in 1950.
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.
