The North Western Gas Board's new coal carbonising plant at Garston

The Liverpool Group is the second largest of the seventeen areas forming the North Western Gas Board. An examination of production rcquirements, made soon after the nationalisation of the gas industry, indicated that additional carbonising plant was needed in the group. It was decided that this should be installed at Garston Gas Works and should provide for an additional 14 million cu.ft. of gas per day. H. G. Cousins
