Keiran, do you remember a navvy driver called Len?, he was a bit overweight and he always had a little dog in the cab with him, he wore really thick lenses in his glasses, the last job he worked on for BCHC was a pipeline contact on hire to Ogdens up alongside the M6 somewhere, he hit some high voltage cables with the jib whilst slewing and I believe the banksman was killed because he was holding the brothers at the time!

Hi,
Here are two R&W Coles cranes in 1965 working on the demolition of the Crumlin Viaduct in South Wales. It was the tallest viaduct in Britain.

Great photos Fred

looks a good hieght !!

Like to see the look on todays H&S officer's face if he had to inspect that they'd have a heat attack :shifty:

Few quid in it for the weigh in with those girders, but interesting getting them down without losing the trestle columns

i can remember well the incident of the lorraine crane,it was doing a tandem lift of one of the girders on the walnut tree viaduct at taffs well nr cardiff.not sure of the crane that was basically sat on the a470 but during the lift the lorraine was pulled off the old railway track above and landed on the taff valley floor i cant remember any one getting seriously hurt in the incident. the main contractor was christiani shand and it was around 1969/1970.

I have a small piece of Cine film footage showing the aftermath of this incident as well as some of these huge cranes. I'm planning on uploading to YouTube. Let me know if your interested.
