The first section of this programme shows the removal of a paper cylinder from a factory in Kendal.
We then see the unloading of what was then the world’s largest paper cylinder from a ship in Watchet and it’s installation at a paper tissue plant in Watchet. Wrekin Roadways were aquired by Wynns in the late 1970s and we see a GEC transformer being delivered to Meaford Power Station by two Scammells still in Wrekin Roadways livery.
A Guy Big J and tanker are shown driving across fields in order to assist in the clearing of a pollution incident. Liverpool Docks and trailer ‘789’ and two Scammells are seen emerging from the ACL container ship ‘Atlantic Causeway’ after loading a 120 ton casting bound for Garringtons, Bromsgrove, Worcestershire. At Newport Docks we see how the deck of ‘Aberthaw Fisher’ moves to allow a large transformer to be raised from ‘below decks’ to the awaiting trailer.
Many other UK moves are also shown.
