Goodmans Transport, Orton Longueville

A Goodmans Transport Ltd lorry probably sitting in their yard at 401 Oundle Road.

Goodmans dated back to 1961 and were based on Oundle Road (Orton Longueville). The location of the yard was the North side of Oundle Road at the west end of Botolph Rail Bridge. The site is now covered by, among other things, a secondhand car dealer, and is opposite the turn into Shrewsbury Avenue.

The vehicle livery was dark green, and Peterborough Heavy Haulage collected drawbar tank trailers that had been filled with tar, brought in by Goodmans, and took them to surface dressing sites for W&J Glossop.
