Salvage Hunters, the popular Quest TV and Discovery Channel show, is heading to Norfolk but needs your help to find great places to film.

The programme, now in its eleventh series, follows Drew Pritchard, an architectural salvage and antiques expert, as he scours the country in search of unusual objects.

Drew has visited everywhere from grand stately homes to private collectors, buying items such as 16th century oak tables and six foot disco balls.

The show airs to more than half a million people in the UK as well as millions worldwide, and has previously recorded specials in Germany, Norway and Ireland.

Salvage Hunters will be heading to Nelson’s County over the coming months, but the team are currently in need of suggestions for hidden gems to visit.

Turning to local residents and antiques aficionados for help, the show are asking anyone who knows of any places selling weird and wonderful objects in the area to get in touch.

If you know of somewhere that might be right for Drew, call 020 3179 0092 or email salvagehunters@curvemedia.com

  • Seriously, I'd advise them to put a call into Tony Hicks if he's still about. An absolute gentleman and a hive of knowledge. I believe he wrote for Archie until they wrecked (I mean changed) the Saturday EDP supplement. A lovely man I'd highly recommend.

  • My Latin's not too sharp and my French isn't perfect, but I think I agree with weaversway. Frank Jordan's scrapyard in Horstead might have something for them. If there's no-one on duty, try The Recruiting. If you want something really old and unfit for purpose, you could always dip in to The Norfolk Club. Park away from the designated spaces that are reserved by 0900 every morning, obviously. Bet this doesn't get thru:-)
