Gas pipeline JLP01_08_076813

NORFOLK. A view of the Fens gas pipeline, showing protective canopies located at joints along the pipe where sub welds were carried out.
Work on laying the Fens gas pipeline started in June 1967 and was a joint venture between Laing Civil Engineering and French companies Entrepose and Grands Travaux de Marseille (GTM) for the Gas Council. Over 600 men worked on the project to lay 36 inch diameter steel pipes starting at West Winch in Norfolk and running to where it linked up with the next contract at Woodcroft Castle in Cambridgeshire. The pipeline crossed four rivers and numerous dykes and ditches

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the remarkable engineering feat of the Fens gas pipeline in Norfolk during the 1960s. The image captures a view of the pipeline, adorned with protective canopies at joints where sub welds were carried out. The construction of this monumental project began in June 1967 and was a collaborative effort between Laing Civil Engineering and French companies Entrepose and Grands Travaux de Marseille (GTM) for the Gas Council. Over 600 skilled workers dedicated their efforts to laying these colossal 36-inch diameter steel pipes, commencing from West Winch in Norfolk and extending all the way to Woodcroft Castle in Cambridgeshire, where it connected with another section. As depicted by this photograph, this ambitious endeavor involved traversing four rivers as well as numerous dykes and ditches across the picturesque landscape of Norfolk. The canopies seen along the pipeline served as essential protection during welding operations at each joint. This historical snapshot not only highlights an impressive engineering achievement but also provides a glimpse into an era when North Sea gas supply was being expanded to meet growing demand. It stands as a testament to human ingenuity and collaboration that made such progress possible. (Disclaimer: This caption is based on information provided by Historic England Archive. )
