1943 – 2010
Jeff was born in Tunbridge Wells, Kent in 1943. Five years later, along with a baby sister, the family relocated to Cornwall, spending two years in a tiny hamlet now dwarfed by the “Eden Project” before moving to Calstock, a small village alongside the River Tamar.
One memorable day a steam roller rumbled through Calstock, followed by one small steam enthusiast for several miles, before the resulting hue and cry, resulted in Jeff’s safe return home. During his boyhood, Jeff had various accidents to the alarm of his parents and the fascination of his sister.
