WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF GOOLE CIVIC SOCIETY
Yorkshire and Humber Regional Civic Society of the Year 2015
Goole Civic Society is a voluntary group dedicated to preserving the unique character of the inland port town of Goole in the East Riding of Yorkshire - making it a better place to live, work and relax in.
The port town of Goole was established in 1826 by the Aire and Calder Navigation Company, which built the docks for the export of coal, transported along the canal network by strings of barges known as Tom Puddings.
While it is less than 200 years old, the town has a rich architectural and industrial heritage from its Victorian heyday.
