THIS weekend sees the second instalment of Antiques Roadshow's visit to Erddig screened on the BBC with millions of viewers set to tune in and see Wrexham's 18th century country house in all its splendour.

More than 5,000 visitors flocked to Erddig last July in scorching summer conditions, bringing their family treasures for BBC's Fiona Bruce and the team of experts to evaluate.

The Leader:

All manner of extraordinary items were pulled out and unwrapped on the day with the show’s experts getting the opportunity to see an exciting array of treasures, including a leather jacket worn by actor Daniel Craig during filming as James Bond and two sketches by Wales’ most famous artist Kyffin Williams. The day also saw a signed personalised letter from Elvis Presley and the unveiling of a Victorian rowing machine.

The Leader:

Other highlights including seeing Ms Bruce cycling a replica Penny Farthing in the home's picturesque garden while over 100 volunteers donned red sashes and straw boaters working in a variety of roles to support the production.

BBC publicist, Pamela Parkes, said: "It was a memorable day at Erddig. Thousands of people came along and brought some fantastic treasures and family memorabilia.

The Leader:

"We filmed enough to make two very special programmes from Erddig, the first was aired in January and the second will be aired on BBC One on Sunday April 14th at 8pm."

Jamie Watson, Erddig general manager, said: "It has been wonderful working with the BBC on one of the country's best-loved TV programmes.

"It has been a fantastic opportunity to showcase the property and I must say a huge thank you to our team of staff and over a 100 volunteers who helped make the day a success."
