Below is a newspaper cutting (newspaper title and date of publication unknown), which gives thanks to the important part played by a Sheffield company. in the operation. Here is a link to a Wikipedia article which gives a brief background to Operation Pluto: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Pluto

I lived in Eckington for a while. The deeds to my recently built Barrat house on "Soup City" stated that I had to give the War Ministry 24 hours access to the land. According to my solicitor, a branch serving the main Pluto pipe line had been laid directly under what was now my house,,, removed before the land was developed it still showed on the Land Registry.
