NORFOLK. A view of the Fens gas pipeline, showing protective canopies located at joints along the pipe where welding was carried out and workers cars parked alongside the pipeline.
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

1960s Cars Engineering Gas Supply North Sea Gas Pipeline


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a significant moment in engineering history - the construction of the Fens gas pipeline in Norfolk during the 1960s. The image showcases protective canopies positioned at joints along the pipeline, where skilled workers carried out crucial welding tasks. Alongside this impressive display of industrial prowess, rows of workers' cars are parked alongside the pipeline, highlighting their dedication and commitment to this monumental project. The Fens gas pipeline was an ambitious joint venture between Laing Civil Engineering and French companies Entrepose and Grands Travaux de Marseille (GTM), commissioned by the Gas Council. Over 600 men were involved in laying these colossal 36-inch diameter steel pipes that stretched from West Winch in Norfolk to Woodcroft Castle in Cambridgeshire, connecting vital gas supply lines. Notably, this feat required overcoming numerous obstacles such as crossing four rivers and navigating through countless dykes and ditches. It is a testament to human ingenuity and perseverance that such complex infrastructure could be successfully implemented. This photograph serves as a visual time capsule, transporting us back to an era when large-scale engineering projects like this were undertaken with determination and precision. It reminds us of our ability to shape our environment for progress while also acknowledging the hard work put forth by those who made it possible.
