think Middleton railway trust is at the Middleton just off the m62 near leeds
Coogan was born north of Manchester in Middleton about 12 miles down the m61/60 from Bolton

I watched several videos of that mad b*stard on YouTube a few months ago. He used to hammer wooden plugs into those chimney stacks and tie wooden ladders on to them. He'd end up sometimes using a couple of hundred sets of ladders about five hundred feet in the air. It's brilliant viewing, the guy had nerves of steel but a right male chauvinist.

Been a few years but in the past I've been on jobs where we had steeplejacks come in normally it was a guy called Wally Wood and his ( I think) brother. It was always fun to drop Fred Dibner's name into the conversation and say how wonderful he was . Wally's response would inevitably start "Fred Dibner , Fred f*****g Dibner" and off he'd go on one , :lol:
