    Spent the past six months living and working on the Upper Heyford site. These photos are of the Quick Response Area, now an English Heritage scheduled monument.

    Many thanks. I only just got into photography after being castigated by the bosses for having no interests outside of work (like there's time!). Got the Lumix LX5 (favorite camera) and the Pentax K-5, Sigma 8-16mm, Tamron 17-50mm f2.8, Pentax 50mm f1.4, ghastly kit lens and the big cheat that is Lightroom 3 (which makes the UK have blue skies all year round, utter magic!)

    It all cost a bundle and I'm completely skint now, but your kind words have made it all worth it (GULP!!!)

    A real slog are these jobs. Here we cleaned, degassed and filled 99 tanks with PFA/OPC grout, 10,000,000 litres of water treatment and foam filled 21km of 6" pipeline in under six months.

    Mostly we demolish old sites and then do the soil and groundwater remediation, the enabling works for redevelopment.

    This is a fuel filter for a 189,000 litre underground fuel (JP#8) tank (that's a small tank). The pipe flange at the back there is the intake from the site fuel distribution ring main, once fed from the National underground fuel pipeline built during WW2 to get aviation fuel from the ports straight to the airfields.

    POL23 got put back together as found. I took about a thousand photos on that job, although not a great proportion are that interesting, mainly the inside of tanks and holes in the ground with foamed pipe sticking out.

    Here's the tank room in POL23B. Pitch black in there when this photo was taken on 30 second exposure (LR3 post-processing).
