Electricity House, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire
This building was built as an electricity sub-station in 1894-5. It was part of Cheltenham's first electricity supply (1895). Here 2000 volts were transformed down to 100 volts at the unusual frequency of 94 Hz. In 1907 the sub-station was converted into electricity offices, but the building has now reverted to its original use as a sub-station. Read official list description.

Electricity House in 2010
If you look carefully at the photograph taken in 2004 you can see that the building has a For Sale board on it. When we took our photograph in 2010 the building was being used as an Italian restaurant.
