THE TV cameras headed to Clitheroe in 2002 when presenter Michael Aspel brought The Antiques Roadshow to the Roefield Leisure Centre.

Queues began forming from the early morning as the folk of the Ribble Valley brought along their family heirlooms and forgotten treasures to be appraised by the experts.

The show attracted over 1,500 people who brought everything from rare pottery to a skeleton puppet.

Joan Titterton was able to show Michael Aspel one of her rare books.

The presenter said: “We are always worried that people won’t turn up but the queues started at six o’clock and people have been bringing some interesting things.”
