BBC Antiques Roadshow Filming At Battle Abbey
On Tuesday the 19th of July 2019 the town of Battle was invaded, not by the Normans or Saxons this time, instead by the BBC Antiques Roadshow team! They filmed the program at Battle Abbey, a place just up the road from me so we went along to watch. Hopefully we will be in the background when it's shown in the winter :)
We go to Battle Abbey quite often as it's so local to us and we are English Heritage members, so can go as often as we want at no extra charge. They say that about 6000 people turned up, I am pleased we were just watching, not getting things valued as we would have been there a long time!

Just a couple of screengrabs from the episode when it was broadcast on the 20th of October 2019. I wanted to include these as my partner and I are in them.
