Welcome to the website of Graham Fisher MBE, proprietor of G. Fisher Enterprises. We normally include an image of the man himself here but just for a change we thought we would instead include one of his cats. Far prettier on the eye. So, here is Lady Charlotte Henrietta Arabella (pedigree puss, pedigree name, but known affectionately just as Cha-Puss) sitting aloof on a box. What is it about cats and boxes? The thing is, she and her feline compatriots make a better job of guarding the house than do the dogs. We might include them another time and you'll get the idea for yourself; Gormless 1 and Gormless 2.
Graham is a noted specialist in the inland waterways of the UK with an interest in the industries they served, particularly Stourbridge Glass, and is a writer, broadcaster and presenter who has over the years carved his own unique niche as an observer of the unusual and the arcane.
Here is your 'one-stop shop' for both G. Fisher Enterprises and Graham's associate Sparrow Publishing, with details of available books, podcasts and presentations, together with imagery, links and listings of other organisations and causes supported.
