An Illustrated History of the Port of Goole and its Railways

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description


No inscriptions.
Not a definitive history of the Port of Goole but, an informative and graphic portrayal of the port from its inception to the present day including its railway connections, past and present.
The author was Assistant Docks Manager there from March 1983 until June 1984 and had overall responsibility for the port, along with the much larger Port of Hull, from 1998 until his retirement on 31 March 2003. The following year, he was appointed as non-executive chairman of RMS Europe Group Limited, a stevedoring company operating the Boothferry Terminal in Goole and the owner of two wharves on the River Trent at Flixborough and Gunness. he held that position until July 2007 when, following a successful management buyout, he finally said goodbye to the port transport industry as a means of employment after a career spanning 37 years.
95% of UK trade is handled through seaports. This amounts to an astonishing total of 560 million tonnes of cargo annually all of which arrives and departs from the ports around our coastline. The ports on the Rivers Humber, Ouse and Trent play an increasingly major part in the UK economy, greater than any other group of ports around a single estuary. The Port of Goole, some 50 miles from the open sea, continues to have an important role .
