Two photographs of the deep excavations at the British Telecom site mentioned on the previous page. Date – 31 May 1982. Compare the floor level with the gardens of the houses in Dyke Road Drive. These gardens had to be heavily buttressed with thick concrete to prevent any subsidence, which might also have affected the houses. This huge office block which arose here was speedily built, and it was opened for business in January 1984.
