1I've never fallen off a big chimney; you only fall off one of them once!
2[after a chimney that he was preparing for demolition fell down spontaneously a day too soon] Aye, well - nobody's been killed, but it's bloody knackered up their fancy day tomorrow, like. Fell down a day early!
3Anybody who destroys anything made of stone should be prosecuted. It is not all beautiful, but it took a man all day to make one stone.
4[talking about dying] The ideal way out would be, I think, instead of dying in bed of lung cancer or something 'orrible like that, just to drop off [a chimney] one sunny day when I'm about seventy-five and that'll be the end.
5[being scathing about people who demolish chimneys the easy way, with dynamite] With dynamite, they're all 200 yards away, hiding.
6I'm just a bum who climbs chimneys.
7Height gives you a wonderful feeling of grandeur. You're the king of the castle up here.
8I set out as a steeplejack in my youth to preserve chimneys. I've finished by knocking most of them down.
9Steam engines don't answer back. You can belt them with a hammer and they say nowt.
10We've become a nation of con men, living by selling double glazing to each other.
11The modern world stinks.
12I realise that steam engines aren't everyone's cup of tea. But they're what made England great.
13A man who says he feels no fear is either a fool or a liar.
14Did you like that? [said after he's just felled a chimney]
15One mistake up here, and it's half a day out with the undertaker.
1He was awarded two honorary doctorates: a Doctor of Technology in 2000 from Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, and a Doctor of the University in 2004 from Birmingham University.
2Whilst Fred was married to Alison, his beloved steam roller was named Alison. However after the divorce, he changed the name to Betsy, the name of his mother, on the grounds that "wives may change but your mother remains your mother"! "Betsy" performed one final act for Fred: as requested in his will, she drove behind his coffin to his funeral at Bolton Parish Church on 16 November 2004.
3He was awarded the M.B.E. (Member of the British Empire) in the 2003 Queen's New Year's Eve Honours List for his services to Heritage and Broadcasting.
4Children (with Sue): Jack (born 1987) and Roger (1991).
5Children (with Alison): Jane (born 1968), Lorna and Caroline.
