Location of the gasholders

The Bromley-by-Bow gasholders are a group of seven cast iron Victorian gasholders in Twelvetrees Crescent, Bromley-by-Bow, London.

The gasholders were built between 1872 and 1878 to a design by the engineers Clark & Kirkham. They are all grade II listed with Historic England.[1]

It has been proposed that the land on which they are sited be converted to an urban park.[2]

In 2018, they were named among the top ten endangered buildings of the Victorian and Edwardian eras in a survey released by the Victorian Society.[3][4]
