Want to own a TV legend’s house? Well, now you can because Fred Dibnah’s house and workshops are up for sale at auction.

If you are from the UK, Fred needs no introduction. If you aren’t, let’s just say he was a small man in a flat cap from Bolton, obsessed with the country’s industrial heritage – and spend more or less every year from the mid-1970s on our screens telling us about it.

The property featured regularly on those shows. Built in 1851, it has everything you would expect from a three-bedroom family home, but with a cottage theme and mock beams. It also backs onto a river and is sold with Fred’s workshops, his equipment and the mining shaft he dug in his last series.

Offers are invited between £300,000 – £350,000.
