Seatown Cullen & Gas Works “Reeky Row”

Cullen Gas Works was built in 1841 and supplied the town for many years till electricity and North Sea gas arrived. Here is shown the derelict remains of the Gas Works; Bay View Court sheltered housing complex now occupies the site. Castle Terrace became known as Reeky row due to the smoke from all the domestic fires that frequently hung about above the houses.
