Dudley was the perfect gentleman and we will never forget the lovely lunch we shared in Zakynthos in September. It is a treasured memory and we are so glad that we had that afternoon together. We are thinking of you at this devastating time and sending our love to you Carole and all your family

Incredible skills, a dedication to his work, a love of his family and his Vincent motorbikes and great sense of humour. A remarkable man who helped me and our family so much. Enjoyed his company greatly on a memorable skiing trip to Tignes one year. Without his inspired leadership at Woodville in Bideford that restoration project could never have succeeded. I am very sorry not to be able to attend his funeral personally.

Our deepest condolences to Carole, Vincent and his family. From Doug and Susan formerly from Woodville, Bideford now in Australia.

Dudley in his element at work re-creating the original balustrade at Woodville from one photograph. An amazing piece of work.
