Ventnor Gas Works

The gas works of the Ventnor Gas and Water Company was located on the coast on Wheelers Bay.

Coal was delivered by sea to the adjacent wharves.

In 1932 the gas undertaking was acquired by the Shankin Gas Company - the local Council had acquired the water undertaking the previous year.

The site is now largely occupied by the Ventnor Holiday Villas.
