Graythorp, Hartlepool. Two cranes on the quayside at Graythorp, lifting the foundation tub of a 509 Revolver crane.
In the early 1970s Laing Pipelines Offshore constructed the Graythorp fabrication yard and dry dock on the site of the old William Gray Shipyard. The company created a dry dock which was used for the construction of fixed platform North Sea drilling rigs for the BP North Sea Oil Project. By 1972, one thousand men were working on site to build a tubular structure which would support a drilling rig in the North Sea destined for the Forties Oilfield

The Roger Howe bridge is located at the grid reference NY and carries the A685 across the River Lune.
