A crew from the television programme Salvage Hunters spent a day at the Old Dairy in Ford last week, filming for a new series.

The programme, which is screened on the Quest channel, features Drew Pritchard, who has his own architectural salvage business in Wales, and

his mate Tee on their nationwide travels.

Owners Keith and Lynne Allan said: “They chose the Dairy because we’ve got a good range of architectural salvage and a horde of quirky bits and pieces on display and I think they’d also heard about our champagne bar made out of marble fireplace shelves!”

The Old Dairy has some marvellous views of the Cheviots and they were covered in snow at the time so the views were spectacular.

One cameraman captured the outside shots, including some new-born lambs in an adjoining barn, and the rest of the team concentrated on the inside where they found a number of pieces they wanted to buy and include in the programme.

“As for what they actually bought we’re not allowed to tell you,” the Allans added.

“But they purchased five different items and one of them was destined for Drew Pritchard’s outlet in Libertys in London.”

The programme will be screened later in the year.
