NORFOLK. A team of workers wrapping and sealing the end of a steel pipe on the Fens gas 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

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a pivotal moment in the construction of the Fens gas pipeline. A dedicated team of workers can be seen diligently wrapping and sealing the end of a steel pipe, showcasing their expertise and commitment to this monumental engineering project. The Fens gas pipeline, initiated in June 1967, was a remarkable joint venture between Laing Civil Engineering and French companies Entrepose and Grands Travaux de Marseille (GTM), commissioned by the Gas Council. The scale of this undertaking is truly awe-inspiring, with over 600 men working tirelessly to lay 36-inch diameter steel pipes along its route. Starting at West Winch in Norfolk, this vital infrastructure extended all the way to Woodcroft Castle in Cambridgeshire, connecting communities along its path. As depicted in this image, these skilled workers faced numerous challenges as they crossed four rivers and navigated countless dykes and ditches during their arduous journey. This photograph not only showcases the sheer magnitude of this engineering feat but also pays tribute to those who dedicated their time and effort to make it possible. It serves as a testament to human ingenuity, teamwork, and determination that shaped our modern gas supply system. Preserved within Historic England's archive collection, this print offers us a glimpse into an era when progress was marked by hands-on labor rather than automated machinery. Let it remind us of our predecessors' unwavering spirit as we continue building upon their legacy for generations to come.
