BBC Antiques Roadshow returns to Stonor

Florence Nightingale’s toolkit, the story of a remarkable female pilot from the Second World War and a rare group of Indian medals are among some of the finds!

Broadcast in two parts filming for the prime-time show took place in summer 2020.

Host Fiona Bruce and more than 20 valuers assessed heirlooms from proud owners across the local area.

We were absolutely thrilled to be part of the BBC Antiques Roadshow – it was a real privilege to host Fiona, the valuers and the production team.

We hope those who came along on the day and everyone who watches at the weekend, find some joy in the unique artefacts from our local area, which are featured in the programme.

Stonor Park is steeped in history, with the Stonor family inhabiting the ancient house for over 850 years. The BBC felt it was a natural fit as venue for The Antiques Roadshow – one of the BBC’s longest running programmes, which uncovers precious antiques and artefacts belonging to local people.

William Stonor said: “We were absolutely thrilled to be part of the BBC Antiques Roadshow – it was a real privilege to host Fiona and the team, who made the experience seamless and very smooth-sailing in these tricky times.
