A History Of The Gasworks & Its Neighbourhood

In November 2018 at Sunflower House, an exhibition explored the history of the Gasworks on Ship Street and Foord Road, and the surrounding neighbourhood. It told the story of Foord: from pre-industrialisation and the coming of the railway, and the relocation of the Folkestone Gasworks and the changes this meant for the town. It also looked at the impact that the site has had on its surrounding neighbourhood through its years of productivity, to its closure and beyond.
