This is an excellent throrough history, and a nicely-produced book.

Fell, M.G.
Very large, 120 pages, photo illustrations, some colour, dock plans, track layout, soft back. **The author was Port Manager at Goole and Hull between 1998 and 2003.

The port thrives, and this record of it does it ample justice.
We were privileged to be shown over the port by the author, an unforgettable experience, the fascination intensified by the sight of more timber than one could have imagined possible.
