MISSING YOU, FRED DIBNAH SONG , i come from bolton, ..so fred really was my local hero, whenever he was on tv i had to watch him, saw him afew times around bolton on his steam engine and his land rover..and once he came to belmont bleaching (where i used to work) he was after some bits and bats of a old steam generator.. sadly i did'nt get the chance to speak to him....
just come across this little poem on another forumn, and i thought i would post it here.....
He took down So many stacks Always with such deep respect, And as if atonement for the deed, He perched the church, a steeplejack And patched the leaks And fixed the face Of time, with his Immortal Grace
