Black Rock Gas Holder
Black Rock Gas Holder
Viewed from Roedean Road and marking the site where the first gas works of Brighton were constructed, initially just over the boundary in the parish of Ovingdean to avoid a local tax on coal. The site continued producing gas until 1885 when production was concentrated in Portslade and Black Rock was reduced to a storage facility which it still retains today. The building in the background to the left is Marine Gate, both that and the holder were hit by bombs during the Second World war.
