Repro ID: H2521
Title: The 'Beckton Alps'.
Description: All that remains of the Beckton Gasworks today is a grass-covered heap of industrial waste. The London Docklands Development Corporation created the 'Beckton Alps' as a monument to an extinct industry in the mid-1980s. Part of a railway locomotive from the works was discovered buried there during excavations at the site. From 1989 to 2001 a dry ski slope ran down the Beckton Alps. This has now been swept away and is being replaced by a modern snowdome with real snow.
