Credit to Tablets for lining this one up.

In 1938 the Duke of Kent opened the largest gasholder of its type in the world in Wincobank for the Sheffield Gas Company - not sure which (if any) of the two current gasholders on this site is the 1938 original.

These are both now decommissioned and emptied of gas so the roof is at the lowest point (so prob doesn't really qualify as High Stuff)

We went up the larger of the two, unfortunately these don't have the full frame seen in other examples, so a bit dull in comparison

Apologies for the lack of photos, there wasn't much variety in the views.
