BBC: Antiques Road Trip takes you into the Gloucestershire countryside

Antiques Road Trip came to Gloucestershire in today’s episode, with Phil Serral cruising the county’s famous canals.

Phil and co-presenter Tim Medhurst have traveled in and out of the Cotswolds, visiting Stow-on-the-Wold, Winchcombe and Cirencester among other places in search of timeless antiques.

The presenters didn’t have much luck in their final auction, as their items bought in Gloucestershire didn’t make much of a profit among the auctioneers.

The trip began with a trip to Tara Antiques in Stow-on-the-wold, where Tim spent £73 on a snuffbox and the waterfront.

This was followed by a trip to Chipping Campden, where Phil met David Hart, a metalworker who has a family business in the village.

After a quick hop over the border to Evesham, Radford and Kenilworth, they finally landed in Gloucestershire, visiting William Shakespeare’s birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon.

It ended with their items being auctioned off at the Cotswolds Auction Society with the sale online only.

So Phil and Tim gathered at Cam Long Down in Dursley to watch the auction on their tablets.

As Phil chose the more exclusive Hillman-style car to arrive, Tim could be seen bumping and falling off his pedal bike as he rolled down the hill.

The pair made a deal – with the loser having to cycle home.

Unfortunately, for Tim, it was Phil who ended up going home with a pot of £343.02 after the last episode.
