TV crews were in Burgh on Bank holiday Sunday to film for the Antiques Road Trip with TV personalities Philip Serrell and newcomer to the road trip Louise Gostello, as they visited the Burgh Antique and Collectables Centre.
Having stopped overnight in Lincoln, they travelled the 40 miles in a bright red, open topped, Jaguar XJS Convertible car, travelling through the picturesque Lincolnshire Wolds arriving in Burgh around 10am and parked in the centre before being photographed with the classic sports car, in front of the Fleece Public House, prior to commencing the Road Trip.
They were accompanied by a team of six others, comprising of two Cameramen, a Producer and his assistant, a Runner and Classic Car specialist who was there to make sure that the car didn’t misbehave.
On entering the Antique Collectables Centre they were greeted by George, and Iris Millington and Cathy Wright who had come to assist by locking, and unlocking, the Cabinets.
The whole visit took approximately four hours, as the Presenters had to do several takes until the Producer was happy with the finished product.
Philip Serrell then went on to Skegness to meet the Town Crier, and Louise Gostello took the classic car on to her next stop in Mablethorpe.
Whilst the Team were in Burgh le Marsh they visited the Windmill and photographed it and St Peter and Paul’s Church, which has been having repairs to its roof, and has only just re-opened for regular Services again.
Both Philip Serrell and Louise Gostello said they were impressed by their visit to the Antique and Collectors Centre, and they made several purchases.
The ‘Antiques Road Trip’ showing Burgh le Marsh, is due to be shown sometime this October.
