Nine Elms Gas Works

My father was a draughtsman at nine elms gas works during the war. He used to do fire watching duty every fifth night. He remembers an air raid when the old horse who used to be kept near the retorts was injured and he remembers the anti aircraft flac sparking off the cobbles in the yards. He is nearly 95.

Nine Elms jetty and embankment

There is a jetty at Nine Elms Pier, east of Battersea Power Station. It was probably built by the gas works which has had several names over the years. Does anyone know who built it and when?

Also, the riverbed in this area is owned part by Crown Estates and part by the Port of London Authority. Riverbed ownership is usually connected to the building of flood walls along the Thames. Can anyone shed any light on why the strange split in ownership and the dates the walls were built in this area?

Nine Elms Sunday Market

Wrong! Nine Elms Sunday Market has an excellent Car Boot section (nearly a third of a massive market.

Bray's Associoates organise this market, but it's best to ask one of the organisers on a visit, or come early before 7am and they will get you on.

My farther worked at Nine Elms Gas Works as an analyitcal chemist in the second world war. As a young boy he used to take me to see the smoldering retorts and the machinery of the production process. It was the property of the Gas Light and Coke Company. The site is now the home of a mail sorting office I believe.
