Laing Offshore

What we know about this image :

In 1971, John Laing took over the disused William Gray Shipyard at Graythorp and offshore oil rigs were built on the site. The site is now owned by Able UK and fairly recently was known for the infamous 'ghost ships' which were dismantled there.

The Nuclear Power Station can be seen in the background.

The photo was taken in February 1985.
