BBC Antique Experts Visit Fotheringhay Raising £6,000

At the weekend we stepped over the Rutland border and headed to the stunning local Northamptonshire village of Fotheringhay. On 2nd July all your favourite BBC antique experts visited Fotheringhay to support the church for a day of valuing, where locals visited and received an expert's valuation on their special treasures, which helped raise £6,000 for 'The Friends of Fotheringhay Church' - a charitable organisation dedicated to restoring and preserving Fotheringhay Church.

We headed down for the day, where from 12:00pm to 5:00pm many locals arrived for an exciting day in the summer sunshine, where Fotheringhay resident and Antiques Roadshow legend, Lady Victoria Leatham - who is also President of the church committee and assisted in organising the event - pulled together her antique expert friends John Benjamin, Dendy Easton, John Foster, Bunny Campione, Lars Tharp and George Archdale to raise funds for 'The Friends of Fotheringhay Church'.
