British Antiques Roadshow

St. Ives 2 (#2620)

Michael takes a return trip to St. Ives, but there's not a cream tea or a Barbara Hepworth sculpture in sight. This is St Ives in Cambridgeshire. Lapped by the Great River Ouse and blessed by the rich black soil of the Great Fen. It was wool, and then cattle, that made the town's fortune. On market days no less than 70 pubs quenched the thirst of the local farmers. [27 minutes] Closed Captioning
