Westerleigh Oil Depot 22 July 1990

Westerleigh Oil Depot, pictured under construction on 22 July 1990. With the newly installed tanks yet to receive their cladding, the rusty metal really stands out in the weak evening sunlight. Just beyond the new office building in the background, is the Avon County Council waste terminal, which had opened a few years earlier, with the commencement of the 'Binliner' rubbish trains to Calvert. The lines on the right, which now end near the M4 motorway, were formerly part of the Midland Railway route to Bath.
