Therm House
Therm House
Built in the 1930s for the Long Eaton Gas Company as a showroom building in Art Deco style, and now converted to a public house.
The name 'Therm House' relates to the character Mr. Therm, created as a sales graphic for the gas industry in the early 1930s, and still going strong into the 1960s. The therm was the standard unit of measurement for the sale of gas to customers in the UK until 1999 and is equivalent to around 29 Kwh.
