NORFOLK. A view of welding taking place along the Fens gas pipeline, showing a protective canopy erected to cover two sections of pipe being welded together.
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 captures a significant moment in the construction of the Fens gas pipeline. The image showcases a view of welding taking place along the pipeline, with a protective canopy erected to cover two sections of pipe being joined together. The Fens gas pipeline project commenced in June 1967 as a collaborative effort between Laing Civil Engineering and French companies Entrepose and Grands Travaux de Marseille (GTM), commissioned by the Gas Council. Over 600 dedicated men contributed their skills and expertise to lay these colossal 36-inch diameter steel pipes, starting from West Winch in Norfolk and extending all the way to Woodcroft Castle in Cambridgeshire. As this impressive engineering feat unfolded, it encountered various challenges such as crossing four rivers, numerous dykes, and ditches. However, through meticulous planning and unwavering determination, these obstacles were overcome. The photograph not only highlights the technical aspects of welding but also provides insight into the sheer scale of this ambitious venture. It serves as a testament to human ingenuity and collaboration that made it possible for North Sea gas to be supplied efficiently across vast distances. Preserved within Historic England's Archive collection, this image offers us an invaluable glimpse into our industrial heritage while honoring those who played an instrumental role in shaping our energy infrastructure during the 1960s.
