Experts from Antiques Road Trip visited north Norfolk for their latest series.
And in an episode to be aired on Thursday, February 6 Raj Bisram and Natasha Raskin Sharp visit Fakenham, Dereham, Sheringham, Reepham, Walsingham, and Holt.
In Sheringham Natasha makes for the sea and the imprint of a deep sea fisherman turned artist John Craske. Meanwhile, Raj stops off to go wild in wellies at one of Britain's first nature reserves in Cley, before they both head to Churchgate auctions in Leicester for their penultimate auction for the week.
The team also heard about the history of ganseys from Sheringham Museum manager Lisa Little. A gansey is the name given to the traditional hand-knitted pullover worn by herring fishermen.
Meanwhile, a favourite lot of one expert is revealed as a butterfly brooch decorated with semi precious opals and rubies, which was bought for £40 in Holt.

Antiques Road Trip is produced by STV Productions whose executive producer John Redshaw said: "Our much-loved antiques experts are back on the road, searching high and low for weird and wonderful antiques. We hope that both fans and new viewers will tune in to this hugely popular show, which as always is full of laughs, friendly rivalries and lots of great characters."
It was the programme's second visit to the region in less than two years, after an antiques shop in west Norfolk was visited by experts in 2018.
In August 2018, experts scoured for Norfolk treasure at The Warehouse Antiques and Collectables in Setchey, near King's Lynn.
Now in its 20th series, Antiques Road Trip celebrates its 500th episode during this series, and airs on weekdays on BBC One at 4.30pm.
In each show, five pairs of rival experts, with a starting fund of £200 each, go head-to-head to seek out hidden gems and make a profit at auction.
Driving the length and breadth of the country in an array of classic cars, including a 1960s Sunbeam, the experts visit antique shops as well as historic and cultural sites to learn about the little-known stories behind British history.
