Scope and Content Temple Gas Works, Glasgow This works was established in 1871 by the Partick, Hillhead & Maryhill Gas Co, to supply those areas, outside the Glasgow City boundary at the time. In 1891 the works was bought by Glasgow Corporation, who closed it down, supplying gas from its nearby Dawsholm Works instead. This shows the gas holders built on the site of the 1871 works by Glasgow Corporation in 1893 and 1900 when they converted the works into a storage depot. The earlier holder is 73.15m, and the later 67.05m in diameter. They have a combined storage capacity of 254,867 cubic metres. Dawsholm Gas Works, which supplied the gas stored in these holders, stopped producing coal gas in 1964, though it later produced gas by reforming naphtha, a product of petroleum refining. The holders now store natural gas. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
