Graythorp, Hartlepool. An aerial view of tug boats towing the oil platform Graythorp I along the Tees Estuary away from Graythorp.
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. Graythorp I had its christening ceremony on June 4th and was launched on Saturday 29th June 1974, heading off for the Forties Oil Field 250 miles away

STAFFORDSHIRE. A sheet pile cofferdam being constructed across a canal on the route of the Barlaston pipeline, as a narrow boat passes by.
The contract for the Barlaston gas pipeline was awarded to Laing Pipelines in January 1970. The pipeline ran for approximately 29 miles from Uffington, near Shrewsbury, to Barlaston in North Staffordshire. Along the route there were 61 crossings, including under the M6, the main electric railway from Euston to Crewe, two canals and six rivers, and a steep climb alongside the A34 dual carriageway near Barlaston. This photograph was taken beside either the Trent & Mersey Canal near Barlaston, or the Shropshire Union Canal near Market Drayton

TEBAY, EDEN, CUMBRIA. A view of the construction of the M6 Motorway through the Lune Gorge, showing the building of a bridge across the River Lune, probably the Roger Howe bridge which carries the A685 across the river.
The work on the Lune Gorge section of the M6 Motorway between Killington and Tebay (Junction 37 - Junction 38) was carried out by John Laing Construction Ltd. Work started in October 1967 and the motorway was opened to traffic in October 1970. On this stretch of the M6, 20 bridges and 17 culverts were built across rivers and streams. The Roger Howe bridge is located at the grid reference NY and carries the A685 across the River Lune. Continuing along this road is the Lawtland House viaduct which carries the A685 over the M6, see also JLP01/08/079762
