Drilling rig in Heysham Harbour
The drilling rig Western Apollo II was in the harbour for servicing.
I believe it was used for the Morecambe Bay gas fields, which were starting to be developed.
The old power station is in the right foreground. SeeSD4060 : Port of Heysham Marine Workshops (1).
The snow-covered Cumbrian fells are in the background.
