Hinton, UK

Michael: "This is the tower at Hinton Nr. Bath, this one is on the left hand side as you are facing Bath and the photo is taken looking away from the A46. Notice there is no one up the tower waiting to land the arm, the reason for this is we only had a 3 Ton winch and the arm weighed about 5 Ton, you can see we used a double whip on the winch rope to compensate. Everything was creaking as we lifted it. The arm being lifted is about 50 ft. long." Picture by Michael
