BBC2's Antiques Road Trip - Kendal - Levens Hall - Cockermouth

Got home on Friday to find rest of household switched onto BBC2, different from the usual fair of Ch4's Come Dine With Me.  Reason - they'd been tipped of that a local antique shop in Kendal would feature.

It's a series that follows two antiques experts in competition with each other, they spend the week travelling to various places buying antiques with the aim of selling them for a profit at the end of the week at auction - sounds familiar !!

This episode saw them visiting auction shops traveling between Morecambe, Lancaster, Kendal then at an auction in Cockermouth.  One of the experts after buying all his antiques visited Leven's Hall for a guided tour by the wife of owner Susie Bagget, the other expert was up the Kendal to visit Sleddall Hall Antique Centre on Wildman Street where he bought a picture from owner Robert Aindow for £30.

The episode can be viewed on BBC iPlayer until Friday 14th January 2011, watch from 24mins in for feature on Levens Hall then Kendal
