Biggar Gasworks Museum
Biggar Gasworks Museum is preserved as a lasting reminder of an industry that provided so much benefit to all the country’s citizens.
About Biggar Gasworks Museum
Enter what was one of the first small-town gasworks to open in Scotland – and among the last to close. For more than 130 years, the industrial plant made coal gas for use in the town and beyond.
Almost all of the gasworks buildings and equipment remain. You can even see some of the steam-driven machines used for gas production and distribution in action.
Biggar Gasworks passed into state care soon after its doors shut. Today, it’s a lasting reminder of an industry that benefited all of Scotland’s citizens, and the only preserved gasworks left in the country.
