ANTIQUES Roadshow broadcast the second instalment of their two-parter filmed at Windermere Jetty Museum.

Presenter Fiona Bruce hosted the Sunday night programme which was originally filmed in 2020, the first episode filmed at

The show featured an array of historical items including an early set of football rules from 1867, a wooden ‘decoy duck’ and a painting by Pitmen Painter Jimmy Floyd which was valued at £5,000.

Also featured on the programme was the story of the ‘Windermere children’, a group of orphans rescued from a Nazi concentration camp who were brought to the Lake District at the end of the Second World War.

Antiques Roadshow expert Mark Allum spoke to actress Sophie Neville who had brought a collection of Swallows and Amazons memorabilia to be featured on the programme. The novel by Arthur Ransome which follows the adventures of six children in their own pirate ship is said to be set in a fictional version of Windermere.

Sophie played the Titty Walker in the 1974 version of Swallows and Amazons which was filmed in the Lake District and has spoken of her experience filming the iconic scenes in the book ‘The Making of Swallows and Amazons’.

She said: “I was just 12 years old when I appeared in the film, it was an amazing opportunity. We came up to Cumbria to film on location and it was just like walking into the pages of the book.”

A 16th century copy of The Canterbury Tales belonging to Hawkshead Grammar School also featured on the show.

The manuscript which had been brought to the roadshow by the curator of Hawkshead Grammar School was printed in 1561 and donated to the school in 1676.

The school is famous for being the alma mater of William Wordsworth, and Literature artifact expert Justin Croft said: “It seems unbelievable that he wouldn’t have looked at this book .”
