Canons Wharf was once one of the busiest quays in the docks, with its own branch of the Bristol Harbour Railway, cranes and a goods shed. The area was also the location of the city gas works. With the decline of industry throughout the 20th century Canons Marsh was cleared to make way for urban renewal. Due to pollution, however, the gas works remained derelict for several years. The area is now the location of At-Bristol, the South West offices of Lloyds TSB bank, a campus of Bristol City College and several bars, resturants and apartment buildings. As of 2005 renewal continues with the construction of several mixed use buildings. Categories: United Kingdom-related stubs | Museum stubs | Bristol | Museums in the UK ...
