Basford Gas Works
Basford Gas Works
Viewed from the Ring Road bridge this 19-acre former gasworks site at Basford was the principal gas production facility for the City of Nottingham from 1854 to 1972 when the site stopped producing gas. After 1972 the site was used as a depot and training facility for British Gas. More recently the site has undergone an extensive soil washing process by the National Grid to remove contamination.
