Hope Folly was finally demolished in late 1967 and a bungalow erected in the garden. Some of the hardcore for the bungalow came from the gas holder.  Luckily the builders remembered, just before plunging in a pick axe into it, that it might still have had some gas in it so took bits off carefully for fear of an explosion.
