The great British summer

On Tuesday 13th July, the next crew of Dutch engineers and technicians
arrived from the Netherlands to start work on the installation of the RF
electronics in the RF container. This crew was from ASTRON and Excel
Assemblies, both based in the Netherlands. Curiously, on that day, the
wet weather returned. Coincidence?

Caption 1 : The ASTRON car arrives!

Caption 2 : Ominous clouds hang over the entrance to the construction
site. The Chilbolton 25m dish can be seen in the background under the
looming clouds.

Caption 3 : Sure enough, with a few dumps of heavy rain the construction
site quickly turns into a quagmire.
