Description: Belfast July 2006

THE GASWORKS
Ormeau Rd and Cromac Dock.
1887-1893 (Robert Watt, James Stelfox and John Lanyon)
The Gasworks fuelled Victorian Belfast’s rapid industrial growth. Its profits were the major source of funding for building the City Hall. It closed in 1988. Belfast City Council and the Laganside Development Corporation then undertook to create public gardens with commercial office space. The new entrance, flanked by sculpture columns depicting ‘Belfast Industry; past and future’, at the centre of the original radiating walkways, symbolises continuity between an industrious past and an exciting future. Historic buildings retained include The Administration Building with its fabulous stairway, and the Clock Tower, Meter House and Klondyke Building.
