This is a press cutting kept by Joan Horsley showing how the Shepherd's Group were using the River Ouse to transport demolition waste from a site in Coney Street. Kevin Nattrass (m. Shirley Horsley) worked for many years at Portasilo which was a subsiduary of the Shepherd Group. Joan was particularly interested in this news item because at the same time Horsley's Transport was transporting sheanuts in barges up the river to Queen's Staithe and discharging them into lorries to be stored in a warehouse at Foss Bank ( now Sainsbury's) for BOCM ( British Oil & Cake Mills) Selby.
