Joe Chetten

Featured Posts

Sad to report that Joe Chetten died last week.

He didn't look at all well when I last saw him at Tipton and Park Head in the autumn and he told me that one treatment he had been receiving had created another.

A working life long boatman and in recent times renowned, and for ever in my mind as one of the 3 Black Country Joe fender makers, along with Joe Hollinshead and the late Joe Self.

Always to be seen and chatted to at all events with any working boats about within quite a drive from his Black County home.

I shall always value knowing you Joe.

Thanks for the info on this old boat.

I learned of his passing last week too, though no details of funeral arrangements have emerged as far as I know. Another link with the past lost, too many of late, Bob Allen and Ian Thompson recently too.
