G2706. This picture of the Bristol Aeroplane Company Engine West Works at Patchway was taken in the early 1950's. Many of the constructions to be built are not yet started and the site still has fields and farmland around it. The road to Winterbourne goes under the railway line to the left of the picture passed the factory units built in 1935 under the shadow factory scheme. Engine test cells for the new, at that time, gas turbines can be seen in the left foreground.
