A fabric survey of historic buildings on the site of the Berkley Street gasworks, Birmingham was
carried out in April 1995 by LUAU staff. The objectives were to determine the extent of survival
of the original gasworks buildings on the site and to elucidate the development of the building
complex over the course of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This work has benefitted from
previous documentary and cartographic research, made available by the Birmingham City
Planning Department.
The survey indicated that parts of the original gasworks buildings had been incorporated into later
structures, but that the present appearance of the site owed far more to subsequent developments.
In particular, considerable changes had occured on the site during the twentieth century, when a
narrow-gauge railway was introduced.
