Mansfields Gas Works


Official Opening of the New Gasometer ?

Until the introduction of Natural Gas, locally produced Coal Gas and the Gasometer storage system was a familiar sight in most towns. Here we have the Gasometer with I assume the staff of the Mansfield Corporation Gas Department.

Here we have a very poor image (due to the high magnification) of the plaque on the Gasometer which I think reads:



Councillor John Cr ____ Mayor

Alderman J H Blare Chairman

Arthur Crana_ Engineer

Clayton Cox & Co Ld Leeds

  • I’ve long wondered about the gas works at Mansfield. Made from coal you’d have thought, like in most towns, the gas works would have had a railway siding for the the coal supply. Not at Mansfield it seems, it must have all come into the Ratcliffe Gate works by wagon?
