Jumped off his steam roller to buy some swan matches for his pipe in my wife's then shop the off licence on old road
Is that right. Didn't know he smoked a pipe. I have heard he used to stop off at the Ram's Head at Stubshaw.
I remember Fred and his traction engine visiting Kirkless NCB workshops just before closure. It would probably have been about the same time. Im sure someone took some photos ? It was said that Fred had come to scrounge some tools,big spanners etc!
i never knew fred smoked a pipe, i am a pipe smoker and know lots of actors and celebraties who smoke pipes, there ya go another one for the old book.
If you look close think you can see pipe in his hand
no'no pipe,a smoker never a pipe
I've seen Fred a few times,and never seen him smoking a pipe,he smoked lots of cigs though.
He never mentions 'pipe', in the BBC episode where he talks about his giving up smoking!
Matches are needed to light up the steam roller.
