Prestons began as a agricultural contracting business in 1936.

But due to the diesel shortage during the Suez crisis, it became a haulage firm.

Despite this change, Mr Preston never lost touch with his farming roots buying the village farm at Hutton Rudby in the 1970s.

Mrs Preston said: “He never lost that love.”
