A 200-year-old stone marking an important part of Bristol’s industrial history has been discovered. Engineers from Wales & West Utilities were cleaning up an old gasholder at the former Avon Street gasworks when they found the stone. It marks the incorporation of the Bristol Gas Company on March 25, 1819 and has been buried in the gasholder tank for some 75 years.
