The Fakenham Gas Museum is the only surviving town gasworks in England and Wales, complete with all equipment used for the manufacture of town gas from coal, doesn't sound too interesting but a visit soon changed that impression.
Access is easiest by motor vehicle although there is no immediate parking available with the nearest car parks in Fakenham, a reasonable walk away.
There is a single unisex toilet, but no refreshments.
The museum is housed in original buildings with original gas producing equipment.
There is a very good collection of gas appliances dating back to the late 19th.
It is a very compact site with everything on level ground, allow 1-2 hours to view.
This museum is worth a passing visit if only to remind ourselves of how we've progressed through technology, however check opening times since it depends on volunteers..
