This programme uses a lot of film
recorded by George Godden showing a
number of movements made by staff from
Wynns’ Chasetown Depot, Manchester. We
are indebted to Tim Wayne for the
limited amount of information that we
have about these moves.
We start with a 132 ft column being
moved from Danks at Netherton to
Liverpool Docks, this was the longest
column ever to be moved by Wynns.
BR class ‘8’ No 71000 ‘Duke of
Gloucester’ is shown being loaded at
Woodhams, Barry, for transportation to
Loughborough for restoration.
A 158 ton vessel is shown being loaded
at Southampton Docks for movement to
Fawley Refinery. Scammells ‘Challenger’
and ‘Enterprise’ were used for the
intricate moves within Fawley. Many
more moves feature.
