A return visit to Saltaire, near Shipley in Yorkshire for Fiona Bruce and the team where one of the longest queues awaits the experts. Cameras focus in on a series of objects with famous connections including a lace fragment believed to have been part of a dress worn by Mary, Queen of Scots, Charles Dickens’ inkwell, and a battered school book of Shakespeare’s The Tempest with handwritten notes by a young Diana Spencer. Meanwhile Fiona tries out a local curiosity as she climbs in to a “Wife Taming Cradle” from Victorian days.
