Locals have been hoping to hear they own a missing masterpiece or priceless piece of history.

Today (14th May), Fiona Bruce and the team have brought the hit TV show to Salisbury Cathedral.

Salisbury has set a new record with an unprecedented number of entries set to be viewed for filming of the TV show.

An incredible 400 or more enquiries and letters have been written to the BBC programme - way in excess of the usual 100 or 200 that the production team behind the show would usually receive.

A special stone carving has been created for the event at Salisbury Cathedral.

Lily and Jessica from Salisbury Cathedral School, took a precious 'School Attendance Medal' which belonged to their Great Grandma to the Antiques Road Show.

The medal was awarded for 100% school attendance in 1900!
