Does anyone have a transcript of the proceedings or even which court this was hear in?
Probably Chancery Division of the High Court?
I am interested in obtaining accurate case history. I already have the gist of it from two reliable informants.

Not sure if of any significance but when one types in a Google search it auto suggests "Hollingsworth" just after the "S" is hit? IP: 86.128.110.171 Edited: 28/02/2016 18:50:51 by Morlock

No, its not. I have tried Google searches and no good, cant find anything on the web.
This is what suggests to me the level in the legal system, if it had been Court of Appeal or Lords/Supreme Court there would certainly be something as this would set a precedent.

Its possible I may find something in the reference section of a public library, there used to be book of case histories published every year. Long before the days of the Internet.

Hello Roy

The National Archives have a few listings under "Consolidated Goldfields" - Not sure which mine etc you're looking for.

I have a few records relating to them drilling in the Sourton area of Dartmoor about 1966.

Extracted from British History Online: -

Rowhedge Sand and Ballast Co. Ltd., founded in 1932, was taken over in 1946 by F. A. Hunnable and Sons of Braintree who reduced production of ballast but increased the output of concrete blocks. A quay 100 m. long was built c. 1960. The firm was taken over by Consolidated Goldfields in 1968 and run by the Rowhedge Wharfland Warehouse Co. which developed a 92-a. site on the river south of Rowhedge village. The quay was extended to 150 m. c. 1970, and the warehouse business expanded after the takeover of Rowhedge Wharf by Newgrain and the Colchester Dock Transit Co. in 1972. By 1973-4 as much as 15.4 per cent of the trade of Colchester port went through Rowhedge, which could handle larger ships than the Hythe. In 1986 Rowhedge could take ships with a draught of up to 4.3 m. at spring tides and up to 3.4 m. at neap tides; the turning space at Roman River accommodated ships up to 76 m. long. The port was bought in 1988 by Associated British Ports Holdings plc, and despite local opposition the length of the quays and area of the warehouses were further increased.

Thanks for this Chris, it does prove that CG had interests in aggregates and ballast.
I was advised that the case sprung off them previously buying the mineral rights of Ingleton Manor to prevent having to pay royalties on the output of a quarry that they had acquired.

Its now looking as though the case was possibly only at County Court level in which case there would be no public record and no legal precedent.

Hello Roy

Have come across lots of entries for 1972 in The Times newspapers online mostly to do with their take over bid of Amery's, as well as others. A date, or month will save me hours of searching if you have one please... still maybe able to help as have numerous research websites I subscribe too.

Regards Chris

I am sorry to say no.
My informant advised that it was from memory and one point had mentioned Amey Roadstone, whether by memory lapse or memory correct. However I have Consolidated from another source as well.

You are very kind going to this trouble.
