Antiques Road Trip - Children In Need

We all had great fun filming with BBC news presenter Kate Silverton and Celebrity Auctioneer Charles Hanson for the BBC Antiques Road Trip. As an added benefit the programme was also raising money for Children In Need.

Wheathills On BBC's Antiques Road Trip

NB The barbaric looking implement at 1.30 into the video is an old agricultural tool - an anti-suckling device.
Kate was very taken by Wheathills, an 18th Century Country House restored over 2 years to its former glory by Nigel Heldreich, the current owner.

Kate became overwhelmed by the inscribed sentiment on an Edwardian Silver Caddy Spoon that said "to Toddles" which brought a tear to her eye and Charles once again managed to drop a Georgian Sugar Shaker during its inspection - never mind Charles the dents all add to the character, supposedly!

Charles and Kate finally left with the Edwardian Caddy Spoon and a Sovereign Holder/Vesta Case after having beaten down Nigel in the price war - Charles looked very gratified indeed.
