Bootle – Landmark Gas Works set for demolition

Bootle Townscape

The Liverpool Echo has news of the proposed demolition of the former gas works off Bootle’s Marsh Lane on its web site – see link above.

I worked overlooking this gas works for many years and took the photo above from my high vantage point workplace (The Triad) a few years back.

It looks like the demolition process is going to be troublesome and lengthy for the residents who live in the surrounding streets.

It’s rather sad to see such a landmark in Bootle being torn down. It was once connected to the railway network and the remains of bridge abutments can still be seen on Hawthorne Road.

Previous postings of mine mentioned this site, here’s a link back to them:-
