It’s Lights, Camera, Action at the Antiques Shop

There’s been a buzz about the shopping village this week following a visit from the BBC Antiques Road Trip team.  The Antiques Shop welcomed Philip Serrell from the show and an interesting few hours of filming followed.  Philip was dropped off by Catherine Southon,  another presenter from the show, in a vintage left hand drive Citroen DS and while she went off in search of bargains elsewhere, Philip searched through the many interesting items in the Antiques Shop.  He was impressed  enough (and thought he could make a big enough profit) to buy a couple of items. You’ll have to watch the programme, which is to be broadcast in the autumn, to find out what he bought!

A delicious lunch in the Cowshed Eaterie followed for our two Phil’s at the Antiques Shop, the two presenters and the 7 crew.  There was more filming in the afternoon , then after some warming cups of coffee from the Farm Shop and armed with some Honeycomb Crunch  (again from the Farm Shop) some cake from the Cowshed  for the journey home the crew left and the day was over.

We hope the crew enjoyed their visit to Yew Tree Farm and we would love it if they returned in future.
