A Short History of the Gas Industry in Swindon

For many years Robin was Wiltshire correspondent to the British Gas magazine, the 'Sou' Wester'. During this time he researched the history of the gas industry in Swindon from its earliest beginnings in 1841 and up to the present day.

Whilst a majority of his research was never published he did write a short history for the commemoration of the opening of its Operational Control Centre in 1986. Contained in a 28 page brochure, it became the author's first significant published work.
