      History After the beginning of the 1860s gas was widely used as a means of lighting So the first gas works of Eisenach were put into operation on 1 October 1862.

    Abandoned Gas Station in Georgia

    First Post Guys! Anyways, my group of friends and I found an abandoned Gas Station south of Atlanta. Apparently, the gas station went bankrupt due to the county screwing them over. A new highway system was out in, and the road to the gas station was relocated, so in order to get to the station...

    Gillingham Gas Holder No 3 - October 2015

    I've been waiting a long time to finally climb this. Not sure what took me so long, but I finally did it recently. It's hard to find out much about this history of this one. All I know is this is gas holder number 3 (The spiral one that remains is gas holder No 4) and it was constructed...

    Huddersfield Gas Holder - July 15

    Climbed with -Raz- 100% the most exhilarating climb we have ever done, with the cages on the ladders only going half way around the back of you to allow for the holder to rise up and then back down again, it really hit home the importance of keeping a tight hold considering the consequences...

    Canterbury Gas Holder - March 2015

    About 6 years ago myself and Frosty had a go at getting up this. We failed at the time, neither one of us was confident enough to try climbing over the gate half way up. Fast forward 6 years, I thought I'd have another crack at this while killing some time in Canterbury, then I revisited it...

    Aston Gas Works- Birmingham- March 14

    Originally, gas was only used for lighting for a few hours at the start and end of each day. Storing gas was the solution to make it over a longer period. The first gas holders were a “bell†floating in a tank of water. Calibration marks were used to show on the floating bell showed...
