Ted Powles

Ted hails from Pensilva in Cornwall and originally left school to become an apprentice farrier. He acquired a wide portfolio of skills at Merlin Glass in Liskeard, before moving to the Bath area to live and work on narrow boats on the Kennet and Avon canal. Ted joined the team during 2012 and says he enjoys the variety of work and appreciates the legacy that he and the other craftsmen Ironart will leave in this area.

When he isn’t getting stuck into projects here at Ironart, Ted plays bass guitar in ‘galloping gypsy folk’ band Calico Jack who regularly gig at pubs, festivals and events. He lives on a 1893 Bantock narrow boat with his partner, two children and their dog. We appreciate Ted for his cheery smile and his fabulous range of hats!
