  1. Does anyone know the history a company called Newton Chambers? Amongst many other things, they built, or at least supplied the materials to build, a gasometer in Aldershot, Hampshire in 1926/7. We are watching this huge landmark (& occasional eyesore) being cut up & sent for scrap to China! Does anyone know how such an enormous amount of iron & steel could have been moved from Sheffield to here in an era when outsize loads had to go by rail? Does anyone have drawings of this gasometer, or a similar one? We have copies of various papers & pictures issued in 1926/7, & pictures taken in the last few months of it's, scrapping which we could send by-mail or snailmail to anyone interested.
