The Gasometer on the Greenwich Peninsula.
The peninsula was steadily industrialised from the early 1800s onwards. A large area in the northeastern portion of the peninsula was occupied in the late 1800s by a vast town gas gasworks, the largest in Europe, until the discovery of natural gas reserves in the North Sea rendered much of the complex obsolete.
British Gas has retained a small gasometer presence on the western side of the peninsula.
