NEWBY Hall near Ripon provides the location for the popular Antiques Roadshow airing at 7pm on BBC1 this Sunday.

Filming at the estate took place in August last year and presenter Fiona Bruce and the team had to endure all weathers, with warm sunshine one day and rain and gales the next.

The filming was slightly different because of Covid restrictions, but the team pulled together some amazing footage of the house and award-winning gardens.

Richard Compton, Newby Hall’s owner said it was 'an honour' that the estate was chosen as a location for the ever-popular programme.

Fiona Bruce, who is filming her 13th series of the Antiques Roadshow, said she was delighted to be at Newby Hall.

She said: "Normally we welcome around 5,000 people to each Antiques Roadshow, but of course in these extraordinary times we will have to do things very differently.

"We've come up with a new way to safely film the show yet still bring you amazing items and stories .

"We’ve had a wonderful time at Newby Hall filming some stunning items in the blazing sunshine and pouring rain.

"Our experts have seen some really intriguing and valuable objects and I can’t wait to see the finished programmes.”

Series editor Robert Murphy said Newby Hall was chosen as a location because of its 'incredible house, award-winning gardens and collection of stunning Roman statues'.
