Risby Barn Antique Centre played host to the BBC as the team from the Antiques Road Trip competed to seal the best deal.

Presenter Natasha Raskin looked at a number of items on sale at the antiques centre which this month celebrates 30 years in business.

Owner, Richard Martin said the crew spent four hours filming and Natasha eventually purchased a music case and early 20th century rain guage.

She was competing against a colleague who was visiting an antiques business in Norfolk to see who could make the most money on their purchases.

Risby Barn Antique Centre hosts around 42 dealers and has visitors from near and far. The TV crew has visited on several occasions.

The centre is housed in a 15th cenbtury thatched barn and Richard and his wife Susan also run a separate past and present unit, coffee shop and garden centre on the site.
