Watch Punchline's latest The B!G Interview with Phil McCormick MD and owner of Nicks Timber Ltd - the oldest continually owned family business in the county, established in 1856.

When Nick first arrived at the company in the early 80's, there were 11 other timber companies along the canal coming into the city. Its from Gloucester and its railway connection that the timber yards would distribute the timber all over the county.
