People might not be getting sentimental over the old metal structure on Tayfen Road but there's a good chance it supplied their home with gas for more than half a century.

Others in Norwich and Colchester are being taken down too. The site at Tayfen Road became a gas works in 1834. Gas was initially produced by heating coal in a container before being transferred to gas holders.

Appliances powered by gas became more and more popular over the years and in 1952 a gas holder was built on site to meet increasing demand.
