Tributes paid to popular Gloucester riverman
RIVERMAN Hartley Everett had the River Severn running through his blood, say his family who are mourning the loss of one of Gloucestershire's unique characters.
One of six children, Hartley was born in Framilode on December 8, 1941, and seemed destined for a life on the riverbank from an early age.
He quickly became one of the most famous faces in the elver fishing community.
Hartley was the 'go to man' as a wildlife expert for all things relating to the River Severn.

A regular on BBC radio sharing his views on Gloucestershire wildlife, the loss of the keen salmon fisherman will be sorely felt across the county.
His daughter Louise said the family have been touched by the kind words of those who knew her dad.
Hartley met his wife Marjorie when he was 21 and they were together for just over 50 years, marrying in 1978.
They lived in Frampton, Saul and Framilode and for the last 28 years 'The Crib' at Longney has been their home, within spitting distance of the river.
