TQ2576 : Former gas works, Sands End Lane

taken 3 months ago, near to Battersea, Wandsworth, Great Britain

Former gas works, Sands End Lane
Former gas works, Sands End Lane
The old gas works site is due to become one of London's hottest hotbeds of activity. It should result in around 2000 homes, but will take almost twenty years. Everything will be swept away apart from a few listed structures: a gas-holder (apparently the only one of its type anywhere in the world), the two-storey white building (former offices), the red brick building to its right (former laboratory), and a war memorial.
The tower in the background belongs to yet another scheme named by putting a word after Chelsea, in this case "Creek".
