Unusual Appeal at Granton Gas Works

Just along from our flat, there is an old disused gasholder.  The Granton History website tells the story of this site.  Most of the site was demolished in the early 2000s, but one of the gasholders was kept alongside the old railway station.  It is actually now a listed building.  I’m sure many would say this building is an eyesore but, for me, it holds some mysterious appealing quality.  Maybe it’s the shapes and symmetry… I’ve been meaning to photograph it for a while but finally got the opportunity today after a cycle down to Crammond in the spring sunshine.

  1. I wish all three where still standing! I’m glad there is one still there! I wish the site looked how it did about 13 years ago!
