Before & Now


This is something we are going to try and do over the coming months, take and old aerial shot and re-create it today. It’s only possible now due to modern technology. Today’s “Before” photo was probably taken in the 1950’s and it shows The Gassworks near the Harbour. Gas was manufactured here and piped around the town to light the streets. The “Now” photo is not taken from the exact same angle but its similar enough to help compare both images. The Gassworks, I think was removed in the early 1980’s and the Town Park created in its place. If you have any more information you can share in relation to the Gassworks, please do let us know or if you have any old photos of the town. More tomorrow.
