Coryton Oil Refinery was ceremonially opened in May 1954 by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. It was operated by Vacuum Oil Company; a unit of Mobil. From 1996, the refinery was run by BP as part of a joint venture with Mobil. Ownership of Coryton Refinery was later transferred to BP in 2000, and then Petroplus Holdings in 2007. Major products of the refinery included petrol and diesel, aviation fuels, liquefied petroleum gas, fuel oils and bitumen. Coryton Oil Refinery was closed down in 2012

Bury St Edmunds Sugar Silo JLP01_10_01050

Bury St Edmunds Sugar Beet Factory, Bury St. Edmunds, St. Edmundsbury, Suffolk. The elevator tower and two sugar silos during construction at Bury St Edmunds Sugar Beet Factory.
A sugar factory began operating at Bury St Edmunds in 1924. In 1972 Laing were awarded the contract to build four sugar silos and a new beet handling plant for the British Sugar Corporation at Bury St Edmunds. The new silos made the factory the largest of its kind in Europe. The original construction period for the project was reduced by a third due to the need to retain storage and access to the silos and factory during the sugar beet campaign, which ran between September and February. New methods of construction, however, reduced manpower requirements and had the potential to increase speed. These new methods included the use of a crane with a revolving jib to hoist and distribute concrete, which replaced the use of a monorail on the working platform at the top of the silo. Construction of the first silo began in February 1973, and the elevator tower in March. The second silo, shown on the left of this photograph, was started on 7th May and was completed on 12th May

Flying Boat JRU01_01_109

TOWER BRIDGE, TOWER HILL, TOWER HAMLETS, GREATER LONDON. A Short Sunderland flying boat on the River Thames at Tower Bridge, with the bridge in the background, during the Battle of Britain Week.
The Battle of Britain Week was an annual celebration by the Royal Air Force of the victory in September 1940. In 1951 it ran from 10th - 16th September, and included a fly-past over London on 15th September. The Short Sunderland was developed by Short Brothers as a flying boat and patrol bomber for the RAF, and was introduced in 1938. A Sunderland was shown on the River Thames every September in the 1950s as part of the Battle of Britain Week celebration, until the aircraft type was retired from the RAF in the late 1950s. In 1951, a Sunderland flying boat was moored on the River Thames opposite the Tower of London from 12th September
