Expert Catherine Southon came to the village to film the show but “unfortunately she did not arrive in one of the many classic cars the BBC use in the series - probably due to a heavy storm that had decided to pay a visit about an hour before she arrived,” said Ken Woods, of the museum.

“They came to do a feature on the museum and its large engines which is planned to slot into one of their programmes sometime in the future, though at the moment we do not have a date.

“Catherine and her team spent several hours filming and were ably assisted by one of the museum’s trustees Mike Penberth, and John Geremeny.”
