The Shipping Container


Sometime after I started working at Diamond Light Source we got an old shipping  container to use for storage while the place was being built. The container was inside and after the place was finished the container was moved outside. 14 years on in it was showing its age and leaking so a new one was purchased. The photos show the amount of effort that went in to moving it




Above the old container waiting to be moved


The building is round and the only way to move it is through the door you see on the right using forklifts




The container is the lifted by crane





Over the storage ring






then down the other side




and moved out side





Where it was left to get picked up.
The lorry came in and unloaded the new one and picked up the old one




The riggers were very quick so I missed the container being moved and caught up with it when it had landed on the lift zone





Cop the size of the lifting straps

The new container now in place and being wired up with lights

Lake at Fforest Fields


Been coming here for a long time and found some photos sowing the site back in 2006


Looks more compact than today and there were no lakes then
 

Now the trees have grown up  and the lakes are now in place
 
 
But it is still the peaceful place to go
Taking Part in Our World Tuesday
