EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a glimpse into the bustling activity at the Berkeley Nuclear Power Station construction site in Gloucestershire during the 1950s. Looking south-west over the temporary offices, one can see a vibrant scene of cars and double-decker buses filling up the foreground. The image showcases not only the scale of this groundbreaking project but also provides a snapshot of everyday life for those involved. Berkeley Nuclear Power Station holds significant historical importance as it was not only the first commercial nuclear power station in the United Kingdom but also one of Britain's earliest nuclear reactors. Laing, renowned civil engineers, undertook this monumental task, commencing work on January 7th, 1957. The expansive 57-acre site encompassed various facilities to support workers on-site, including offices and temporary housing. This photograph offers a unique perspective on how transportation played an essential role in facilitating operations at such an ambitious undertaking. As we delve into this remarkable archival piece by A© Historic England Archive, we are transported back to an era where innovation and progress were transforming our energy landscape. It serves as a reminder of both human ingenuity and collective effort that went into shaping our modern world through pioneering projects like Berkeley Nuclear Power Station.
