As is the case all over the country the gas holders that used to store town gas have been disappearing from the town and city landscapes of Britian, as is the case on the outskirts of Keighley in West Yorkshire.

Cw 9073 Info on dismantling the gas works at Keighley June 2022.
During the summer of 2022 the old gas holders off Airedale Road in Keighley in West Yorkshire are being dismantled as they are now redundant due to the progress of technology which means it isn’t necessary to store gas in gas holders as it is now just piped straight to the end user being stored at high pressures in the pipe network. This is not the only site in West Yorkshire where these industrial relics are going to be removed, it’ll be a bit of a pity to see the end of these, memories of lots of folks childhoods..
