Who is watching Fred? From Norman castle construction to Victorian engineering. What a joy! Wonderful to see the older engineering skills are still out there. Enjoy.

Fred Dibnah? I watched them when they were on steam driven TV. Fred died in 2004 sadly

I have Fred DVDs on in the shed when I'm tinkering. Love him, wish he was still around. Shame what happened with his house.

He was a true legend, not quite normal, or is it us who are not normal ?

Partial to watching Fred myself - fasctinating to see in action.

Benzine - I understand having him on to watch in the shed.

I've seen him a few times at traction engine rallies back in the day. Mad as a hatter. Lovely bloke.

I was hoping Guy Martin was going to fill the gap left by Fred.

Some of Guys shows are really good. Others are just wannabe Richard Hammond or James May shows. Which is a shame as he he better then them.
