  • For many seasons played one of two policemen who regularly witnessed the strange and hilarious occurrences resulting from the antics of the senior residents of Holmfirth in "Last of the Summer Wine (1973)."
  • Worked for British Rail at Mexborough during the 1960s before becoming a professional performer
  • Was a well-known and talented folk singer, guitarist, comedian and radio recording artist before becoming a broadcaster and actor.
