|The Joyce brothers (Bill and John) ran a heavy haulage firm in the latter part of the last century, mainly using tipper lorries and transporting sand and gravel. The photo above was taken in about 1977, and shows the firm's lorries parked at Cyril Desborough's yard in Latimer Close. The brothers also ran a heavy vehicle repair business, which ceased trading in 1997, on the retirement of Bill. The haulage operation contimnued for a few years longer.
This land has now been redeveloped, but was once the site of Burton latimer's brickyard.
