BBC Countryfile comes to Acton Scott

BBC Countryfile comes to Acton Scott
Cameras rolled at Acton Scott Historic Working Farm during half-term week, as BBC1’s Countryfile paid a visit to focus on Crafts in the Countryside.

Popular TV presenter, Ellie Harrison, and her crew spent two days filming traditional skills around the farm, from blacksmithing to butter-making, for a programme being transmitted this Sunday, 16th November, at 1815 on BBC1.

Late last year, the farm hosted Channel 4’s Monty Don’s Real Craft series, which was aired in May, so this, together with Ellie’s report this Sunday, gives national recognition to Acton Scott as a centre for traditional skills.

Acton Scott’s 2015 programme of Traditional Rural Craft and Trade Courses has just been launched, featuring many favourites, such as Working with Heavy Horses, Blacksmithing and Cidermaking, alongside some new skills, such a stone masonry and foraging. Many of these courses make wonderful, original Christmas presents.
