There are essentially 2 gridsquares in this view from Spring 1982: SD4258 in the foreground and SD4259 in the background. (Small parts of SD4158, SD4260 & SD4359 are also visible.)
Middleton village is in the foreground, with Middleton Road crossing from left to right in front of the line of trees.
Beyond that is the eastern part of the Trimpell industrial site. Most of this has since been demolished, but the storage silo in the centre of the photo still remains (see SD4259 : Silo, Middleton Industrial Estate).
The old railway sidings can be seen, forming a D at the left hand side of the photo. A new access road has now been built on this railway embankment, which links to the relatively new A683 Heysham bypass (seeSD4260 : New road to Lancaster Waste Technology Park).
At the top of the photo are the pylons for Heysham power station, and the BT telecommunication tower (see SD4260 : BT microwave radio tower on Heysham Moss. Morecambe, Lancashire.).
