The Old Gas Works

The Purifier House East is a Grade II-listed building. The Linden Homes redevelopment converted the ruined buildings into flats and waterside commercial units.

The Society criticised the continuous flat roofed dormers. Linden offered a choice of designs for the new upper floor. The new plans led to an acceptable solution more sympathetic to the original design. Linden restored the surviving fabric of the former industrial buildings to a high standard. Meanwhile, the Soil Association (SA) bought the other half of the Gas Works site. The Association wishes to develop the unroofed industrial building as its new headquarters and to build a residential block on vacant land. Subject to details of the design, the Society welcomes the change of plan and the proposal. The SA is in discussion with a development partner.
