An Illustrated History of the Port of Goole and its Railways

Details

This work follows a similar style to the author's previous book 'An Illustrated History of The Port of King's Lynn and its Railways'. As such it is not intended to be a definitive history of the Port of Goole but, like its predecessor, an informative and graphic portrayal of the port from its inception to the present day including its railway connections, past and present. The author enjoyed the privilege of being responsible for both ports. Insofar as Goole is concerned, he 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. However, the fascination remains undiminished especially as its importance, rather amazingly, remains largely unrecognized notwithstanding the fact that some 95% of UK trade is handled through seaports. The Port of Goole, some 50 miles from the open sea, continues to have an important role to play.
