Fuller Farm Services, just south of Grantham on the A1. blue and red volvos.
BWH North muskham, nr Newark blue scanny 82/83s
Dawsons of bicker, think still going, green volvos.
Grimers of Billingborough, remember going to there yard in the late 80s, and it seemed that their yard was most of the village, with an old office on the high street. Think they're still into wharehousing.
Maple's were based behind the old petrol station at the top of Essendine Hill (now a hand car wash and bus depot). They went about 10/15 years ago. I think Grimers packed in a couple of years ago. They were based in the old station yard at Billingborough.
Does anyone have photos of Maple vehicles? .
