Book Description

The official biography of a national treasure. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Fred Dibnah won the hearts of millions of viewers with his television programmes about his life as a steeplejack, and his passion for the industrial history of Britain. With his trademark flat cap, enthusiasm and knowledge of the country's steam past, his gift for storytelling, and his cry of 'Did you like that?' as another giant chimney slid to earth behind him, he quickly became a genuine favourite with viewers.

This is an intimate portrait of Fred, from his childhood in Bolton, to his days as a steeplejack - the job he was to love above all others - and on to his successful television career. We discover all the different sides of Fred's personality - engineer, steeplejack, artist, craftsman, steam enthusiast, inventor, storyteller and eccentric. This definitive biography will delight Fred's many fans.

'Fred Dibnah, philosopher and steeplejack, has been representing the people for nearly 20 years'
Sunday Telegraph

'Dibnah, a true man of the people...you can almost hear the echoes and smell the oil and smoke in this affectionate delve into his life'
Manchester Evening News --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
