11/84 Gas generator house
to north of Cranford


Gas generating house, probably 1903. Brick with stone dressings, timber-framed
tile-hung tower with lead cap; red tile roof. Small L-plan building; north
part,which housed the generator, has half-hipped gable end with vertical-
panelled door under 4-centred arch and block eaves cornice; another vertical-
panelled door on left return and 2-light mullioned window on right. Octagonal
lighthouse-like tower rises from ridge, with slightly bowed sides and small
casement windows below the pyramidal cap.
Interior: the tower still houses the tank which supplied water to calcium
carbide in the generator (removed) beneath, producing acetylene to provide gas
lighting. This potentially-hazardous equipment does not appear to have remained
in use long; the tower is an unusual Survivor.
