Dear DMC,

I suggest you list this museum in the museums section: The Gasworks Museum in Biggar.

Warning: This page contains one exclamation mark, and several colour photographs.

Then there is the equally uninspiring Savings Bank Museum


Dear Andrew,

We look forward to visiting Biggar, especially to watch one of the demonstrations at the Gasworks Museum. And also to see the gasometers. But what is a retort house?

The Savings Bank Museum will be facinating to visit also. We did not know until hearing from you that Rev. Dr. Henry Duncan was the father of savings banks. It’s understandable, however — as Scots are known for frugality and saving, it makes sense that savings banks were fathered there.

Thank you,
