The Old Gasworks in Sudbury was built in 1874 and was designed by George Devey, a noted architect of the time. Gas was produced from coal and piped to Sudbury Hall, as well as many houses in the village. The gasholder was dismantled in the 1930s and the building now stands empty, with noticeable deterioration.

In 2013, volunteers from the village formed Sudbury Gasworks Restoration Trust (SGRT), a building preservation trust which aims to save the building and adapt it to serve the community once again. As a registered charity, SGRT is raising funds from various sources to:

Involve people in the research and recording of the building’s history
Restore, conserve and sympathetically extend the building
Provide an attractive and modern community facility.

Thanks to the support of National Lottery players and other funders, including the Architectural Heritage Fund, development funding has been awarded to help progress plans. The SGRT hopes to apply for a full grant at a later date.
