  • culzean_castle
    tells the story about the life and achievements of William Murdoch 1754 1839 who is generally regarded as the Father of Gas Lighting Culzean Castle Originally spelt Cullean in the Victorian period The Castle which is built at the cliff edge overlooking Culzean Bay was an ideal location where a small gas making plant could be built sited adjacent to the beach where small puffer boats could deliver the coal which was used to make the gas right up to the shore keeping the handling of the fuel to a minimum The gas plant sited at beach level was also then out of sight to the owners of the Castle This artist s impression on an information board shows how the gas works would have looked in the 1880 s with a small boat offloading the coal into a waiting horse and cart The coal was then taken up the beach into the yard to be stored until used The Retort House with the chimney needed to be worked 24 hours every day to maintain a sufficient quantity of gas to fill the gas holder and also supply the needs of the Castle The Gas Managers House was the building where the people lived who worked in the retort house THE RETORT HOUSE Inside the Retort House A full size realistic model has been constructed to show what the working layout would have been like inside the Retort House The actual conditions for the workers with the intense heat smell and dirt when feeding the retorts with coal can only be imagined and therefore never fully appreciated A diagrammatic colour layout showing the creation of town gas from coal Each stage in the manufacturing process is identified before the gas can be stored and prepared ready to be fed up
