§ Mr. T. Williams
One 2-ton lorry, one 30-cwt. truck and one 10-cwt van have been used since 31st March, 1947, in carrying farm produce from Corby Grance Farm. Ten double journeys were made in all, covering a total mileage of 421 miles, of which 90 miles, or 27 per cent., represented empty mileage. The 2-ton lorry and the 30-cwt. truck were garaged at Bodelwyddan about nine miles from Corby Grance, and the 10-cwt. van at Abergele, about five miles from Corby Grance.
