Lavenham Gas Works – Water Street

The Gasworks were built by Alexander Roger Stark and the village was first lit by gas on 14 October 1863. This was a high profile event and to celebrate, Stark hosted a dinner at The Swan Hotel.

All that remains of the gasworks is a gasholder, one of the only two remaining of this type. It is believed to date from 1862. It was protected in June 1980 when it was awarded the status of Scheduled Monument. In 2022, the gas holder was restored by National Grid with story boards explaining its importance and history. The site has been gifted to the Parish Council.
