The twin Provan Gasworks gasometers, usually only glimpsed from the M8, are seen here in the early 1960s, when, rather than a noisy motorway, they had a quiet canal for company.

Built by Glasgow Corporation between 1900 and 1904, originally the plant manufactured town gas via the coking of coal. 

The old plant's gasometers are among the largest of their kind in the UK, each capable of holding enough gas to supply a city the size of York for an entire day..

With the site long-decommissioned, the future of these landmark industrial structures now hangs in the balance.
